Issue

When running SRM reprotect, it fails with the error message:

Failed to reverse replication for device '//svm/volume'. SRA command 'reverseReplication' failed for device //svm/volume'. SnapMirror resynchronization failed. Ensure that the devices are configured correctly. SnapMirror resync cannot be performed because source volume or source system is not available. If the source site has been lost and you need to perform a real failover use the forced cleanup option. Check the log files for more details
