Failed to apply the source Vserver configuration. Reason: Unrecoverable error during configuration replication, requires manual intervention. Error: Cannot fetch parent volume snapshot details for Flexclone <destination_vserver>:<destination_clone_volume>. Reason: Parent snapshot is empty for clone volume. If the parent volume is offline, either bring it online on the source cluster or contact technical support to add the clone volume to the "Allowed Clone Volumes" list on the destination cluster.
