Handling resynchronization failures

You can take some corrective action if the resynchronization of the original vFiler unit with the disaster recovery vFiler unit is interrupted or not completed.

Steps

  1. Check whether the vFiler unit you were resynchronizing exists on the storage system on which you were running the vfiler dr resync command, enter the following command:
    vfiler status
  2. Depending on whether the vFiler unit exists, perform the appropriate action:
    If the vFiler unit... Then...
    Exists

    Stop the vFiler unit by entering the following command:

    vfiler stop vfilername

    vfilername is the name of the vFiler unit.

    Does not exist

    Go to Step 3.

  3. Create the vFiler unit by entering the following command:
    vfiler create -r vfilername pathname
  4. Resynchronize the vFiler unit by entering the following command:
    vfiler dr resync [-l authinfo] [-a alt-remote, alt-local] [-c secure] [-s] dr_vfilername@disaster_recovery_filer
  5. Depending on the error message you get, perform the appropriate action:
    If you get... Then...
    A “volume offline or does not exist” error message
    1. Make the volume online or create it.
    2. Resynchronize the vFiler unit.
    Volume resync error messages

    Reactivate the original vFiler unit by using SnapMirror commands.
