Issue

When running a failover test using VMware SRM and NetApp SolidFire SRA on a volume replication set as "Snapshots Only" you get the following message below. 

Error - Failed to create snapshots of replica devices. Failed to create snapshot of replica device HCI-cluster:117296FE:24. SRA command 'testFailoverStart' failed for device 'HCI-cluster:117296FE:24'. No existing snapshot found SnapshotOnly replicated volumes require an existing snapshot to perform a failover or failover test

From SRA logs

2020-08-24 11:19:42.901 INFO  ReplicationService - Target volume [24] is replicating in SnapshotsOnly mode so locating the latest existing replicated snapshot on the volume
2020-08-24 11:19:42.901 ERROR ReplicationService - No existing replicated snapshot of volume [24] was found.
