Possible conflicts between SnapMirror operation and Snapshot copy schedule

Some of the operations of SnapMirror might conflict with the actions of a Snapshot copy management schedule. Certain steps enable you to avoid these conflicts.

If the SnapMirror feature is scheduled to perform Snapshot copy management at the same time as a snap sched activity, then the Snapshot copy management operations scheduled using the snap sched command might fail, generating syslog messages such as: Skipping creation of hourly snapshot and Snapshot already exists.

To avoid this situation, you should stagger the Snapshot copy update schedules so that SnapMirror activity does not begin, or end at the exact minute that a snap sched command operation attempts to create a Snapshot copy.
