I am trying to create snapshots of the secondary image of a mirrorview set. The host is obviously zoned to the storage unit hosting the primary LUNs. When i select the mirrorview secondary as a replication source i am not able to select snapview snap (remote), just snapview snap. Any tips?
You can only select snap on a remote secondary volume as a source, because remember that snap will in essence BE remote, as it is being created off the remote MV Target.
Thanks for the quick reply. However when i run the replication i receive the following error:
n 26, 2010 3:20:28 PM server01 000708 ERROR: This is a REMOTE replication, but no remote node exists in the source node for source
Jan 26, 2010 3:20:28 PM server01 101199 ERROR: Could not select storage for activity, server01.
Jan 26, 2010 3:20:28 PM server01 000198 ERROR: Unable to select suitable storage for this replication.
I thought this was due to the snapshot being local instead of the remote site. Any pointers? I must have something configured wrong.
