Last Updated:


Applies to

  • Metrocluster fails to switchover or switchback with the following errors:

Apply failed for Object: volume Method: baseline. Reason: Volume "source-endpoint-volume_RENAMED" in Vserver "affected-vserver-mc" is the source endpoint of one or more SnapMirror relationships. Before you delete the volume, you must release the source information of the SnapMirror relationships using "snapmirror release". To display the destinations to be used in the "snapmirror release" commands, use the "snapmirror list-destinations -source-vserver affected-vserver-mc -source-volume source-endpoint-volume_RENAMED" command.
