Issue

  • The used space is different between source and destination for the SVM DR relationship.
  • Attempts to update or resync an SVM DR relationship fails.
  • it's reported "no common snapshot copies are found" :

Transfer for volume "<volume>" failed. Reason: No common Snapshot copy found between <SVM>:<volume> and <SVM-DR>:<volume>. Delete the volume using the (privilege: advanced) "volume delete -force" command. Then, perform a SnapMirror resync using the "snapmirror resync" command. Execute "snapmirror show -destination-vserver <SVM-DR> -fields last-transfer-error,unhealthy-reason -expand" to check if the constituent volumes have encountered errors.

  • Sometimes, the destination volume can not be deleted like below:

cluster_dst::*> volume delete -vserver SVM1 -volume volume1 -force true 
 
Error: command failed: Volume volume1 in Vserver SVM1 must be offline to be deleted. 
 
cluster_dst::*> volume offline -vserver SVM1 -volume volume1 -force true 
 
Warning: Forcing offline volume volume1 in Vserver SVM1 can potentially disrupt access to files in other volumes. 
Do you want to continue? {y|n}: y
vol offline: Error offlining volume "SVM1:volume1". Error while deleting junction.
