Sun Feb 16 15:58:54 GMT [dst-filer:replication.dst.err:error]: SnapMirror: destination transfer
from filer04:vol_appsdata to filer06:vol_appsdata : destination in use as source of SnapVault
for NetBackup, dump, vol copy or SnapMirror.
Snapmirror update goes to pending state.
As the error indicates, this can happen during snapvaulting, netbackup, dump, vol copy or
cascade snapmirror operation.
I have encountered this error during vol copy process. During vol copy process [i.e. vol
copying the snapmirrored volume for testing dedupe savings] the destination volume [which is
a source during the vol copy process] is locked and in use for vol copy process. Therefore,
snapmirror update cannot replicate the blocks from the source volume to the destination
What to do:
Nothing, this is normal. Once the vol copy process completes, pending snapmirror state will
turn green [transferring state].
