Issue

  • An SVM DR resync operation encounters the following error, failing the resync operation:

Failed to apply the source Vserver configuration. Reason: Apply failed for Object: sis Method: baseline. Reason: Failed to modify efficiency configuration for volume "vol_name" of Vserver "svm": Cannot perform efficiency operations on deprioritized volume. To be able to perform efficiency operations, run "volume efficiency promote" command first. If there are active SIS operations then use the "volume efficiency stop -all true -vserver * -volume *" command to stop all efficiency operations on all volumes in the cluster.

  • An individual volume SnapMirror may see the following error during resync but will continue the resync operation:
