  • Initialization of an SVM DR relationship fails by the following error.


Failed to generate baseline. Reason: Unable to generate baseline for table sis. The system might be busy, retry the operation after some time.
Execute "snapmirror show -destination-vserver <DESTINATION-VSERVER> -fields last-transfer-error,unhealthy-reason -expand" to check if the constituent volumes have encountered errors.
