I wonder what is happening to my Replication manager job ?
I received this error last night:
2012 04 05 18:14:58 RepMgr01-VM 026426 ERROR:Replication Manager was unable to expire 2012 04 04 00:16:34. ERROR: the replica is in use by another process.
2012 04 05 18:14:58 RepMgr01-VM 001556 ERROR:Replication Manager cannot create the replica because rotation is full and none of the existing replicas could be deleted.
Any idea or suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
* What version of RM is it?
* Is that Appset/Jobs previous replica still mounted? - if so - try a manual unmount and try the job again.
* Did by any chance the RM Server get suddenly rebooted?
Try this as a workaround
it is the SnapView snapshot job that is failed.
The RMR version is v184.108.40.206
and no the RMR server is not restarted at any time at all.
when I right click on the Application Sets of the failed jobs, the expiration is already enabled.
the validation seems to be successful after I disable and re-enable it.
However, the replication job is still failed with the same error message. (...Application set is active in some other operation.)
