Monitoring the SVM disaster recovery relationship status

You can monitor the status of the SnapMirror relationship between the source and the destination SVMs to ensure that the updates are occurring based on the schedule.

About this task

SNMP is not supported for monitoring SnapMirror relationships between the source and destination SVMs.


  1. View the details of the SnapMirror relationship status by using the snapmirror show -instance command.
    destination_cluster::> snapmirror show -instance

  2. If the Mirror State is Uninitialized, initiate the SnapMirror transfers again.
    The SnapMirror initialization or resynchronization operation might have failed because data replication failed at the volume level, configuration replication failed, or other such failures.
    • Complete the initialize operation by running the snapmirror initialize command again.
    • Complete the resynchronization operation by running the snapmirror resync command again.
  3. If the Healthy field is false and the Last Transfer Type is break, run the snapmirror break command again for the SVM disaster recovery relationship.
    Some volume-level SnapMirror relationships might have failed to break during the last SnapMirror break operation on the SVM disaster recovery relationship.
  4. Optional: After a cluster reboot, ensure that the source SVM is unlocked for any management operations.
    The source SVM is locked during the cluster reboot.
    1. Verify that the source SVM is locked by using the vserver show -fields config-lock command.
      source_cluster::> vserver show -fields config-lock
      vserver config-lock
      ------- -----------
      vs1     true
    2. If the source SVM is locked, then unlock it forcibly from the advanced privilege by using the vserver unlock command.
      source_cluster::> set advanced
      Warning: These advanced commands are potentially dangerous; use them only when directed to do so by NetApp personnel.
