- ONTAP 9
If the MDV (Metadata Volumes) are missing the system should be able to re-create them automatically. A potential failure of the re-creation process on the source cluster can occur due to a 60 second timeout. Due to the missing MDV volumes, SnapMirror updates will fail and reportedly, CIFS share access may be affected on the source cluster.
- SnapMirror failure displayed on the destination cluster:
Failed to create snapshots. Metadata volume is not available on cluster "source". Run "snapmirror config-replication status "show" for more details.
- Error on the SVMDR source cluster:
clus1-src::> snapmirror config-replication status show
