Issue

Qtree SnapMirror (QSM) and SnapVault (SV) rollbacks are a transfer from the destination filer to itself. Due to a misconfiguration in hostname resolution, the QSM / SV destination is sometimes unable to connect to itself and will fail with the following error:

Rollback_failed (cannot connect to source filer)
