My PM (Version 3) is having problems to discover a manual created Qtree SnapVault relationship which I have deleted some time ago. 2 new manual created SnapVault within the same volume where discovered correctly. When I try to add the Qtree to the specific data set I get the following message.
Question is now how I can import the relationship, which has be re-created after the deletion, into PM once again? Is there something I have to do on the PM itself that the deleted Relationship got removed for ever and can be re-discovered by PM? On the Filer cli everything looks fine but I want to control the SnapVaults via PM to get a better overview etc.
Thanks a lot
Check for the re-created relationship in the external relationship tab and try to import it.
If the deleted relationship qtree is part of the dataset remove it from the dataset uisng dfpm dataset relinquish command.
Then do a dfm host discover on the source and destination filer and wait for few miutes for the snapvault discovery to complete.
Then import them back to dataset.
Thanks for your comments Adai. The re-created relationship (done using the snapvault start command) isn't showing up in the external relationship tab. I removed the relationship using PM GUI and nothing else. Currently the QTree I want to add to the dataset ins't part of it but it was previously.
Can you tell me in more details how I have to deal with the dfpm dataset relinquish command?
Entered dfpm.exe dataset relinquish %qtreename%
and got following Error: Could not find volume or qtree '%qtreename%'. Reason: There is no host, aggregate, volume, qtree, resource group, or dataset named %qtreename%.
Question for me is why does PM find a relationship which got deleted?
I've got a similar issue in OnCommand Core 5.1 where I've deleted a qtree from a dataset, completed dfpm relinquish, now my dataset is shoing as non-conformant with the same error message as posted initially, i.e.
It seems a complicated process to remove a SV relationship from a dataset and have things properly cleaned up.
