SnapMirror: could not read from socket

[destination: replication.dst.err:error]: SnapMirror: destination transfer from source:/vol/srcvol to /vol/dstvol : could not read from socket.

/etc/log/snapmirror on the destination filer logs this:

dst Thu Jan 24 11:55:01 EST source:/vol/srcvol destination:/vol/dstvol Abort (could not read from socket)

/etc/log/snapmirror on the source filer logs this:

src Thu Jan 24 11:55:01 EST - - Abort (Access denied for SnapMirror/SnapVault destination)


Check the snapmirror.access options.  Ensure it is set to 'legacy' or has the destination/source filer as an allowed host.  In this example, the destination filer was not allowed access to the source filer.

source> options snapmirror.access
snapmirror.access            host=,filer1    
<- where is the destination filer?

Once added, the snapmirror transfer ran successfully:

source> options snapmirror.access host=,filer1,destination
source> options snapmirror.access
snapmirror.access            host=,filer1,destination
