Issue

  • SnapMirror Synchronous relationships fail to update on schedule. EMS alerts indicate that the relatioship is going out-of-sync - 

[SOURCE_NODE_9.10: sm_logger_main: sms.status.out.of.sync:error]: Source volume "svm1:vol1" and destination volume "svm2:vol2" with relationship UUID "123" is in "out-of-sync" status due to the following reason: "Transfer failed.".
[SOURCE_NODE: sm_rpl_admin_main: sync.snapmirror.oos.frequent:error]: Source volume "svm1:vol1" and destination volume "svm2:vol2" with relationship UUID "123" is frequently undergoing change in status from "in-sync" to "out-of-sync".

[DEST_NODE_9.8: sm_logger_main: sms.status.out.of.sync:error]: Source volume "src_path" and destination volume "dest_path" with relationship UUID "123" is in "out-of-sync" status due to the following reason: "Transfer failed.(Error unmarshaling replication operation data on Cluster Id: <uuid>, Node Id: <uuid>(IDL generic failure(Refer to the corresponding sms.status.out.of.sync EMS generated on the SnapMirror destination cluster for more details on the OutOfSync reason. If the SnapMirror destination does not generate an OutOfSync EMS this could be a transient failure during a resync operation.)))".

  • Manual update works without issue.
  • Update failure messages include:
    • Failed to start replication on source.
    • Transfer failed.
