Error description

  • A replication error is being reported with the following
    error string "DuplicateRelationshipError". Reviewing the
      virgo log file the following message is seen:
    
      INFO pool-1771-thread-1 c.c.e.s.common.storage.vsnap.
      VsnapStorageConnection 1530525600146 reason : {
        "error":
        { "message": "Another relationship
           (bdd194068ec250bfa5d88afca193d422) already exists for
           this  volume", "type": "DuplicateRelationshipError" }
        }
    
      This is due to a previous replication failure, which
      resulted in maintenance removing some of the metadata to
      do an incremental and causing the subsequent failures.
    
    Spectrum Protect and Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
      IBM Spectrum Protect Plus 10.1.1
    Customer/L2 Diagnostics (If Applicable)
      Look for error messages as reported above.
    
    Initial Impact:
      Medium
    Additional Keywords:
      TS001115187 Maintenance Repl Replication
    

Local fix

  •   Prior to applying the fix, the following command needs to be
      ran on the affected vSnap server:
    
       vsnap relationship delete --id <id number> --preserve_replica
    
      Using the message above and extracting the ID from the
      message, the command would look as such:
    
      vsnap relationship delete
        --id bdd194068ec250bfa5d88afca193d422 --preserve_replica

Problem conclusion

  • IBM Spectrum Protect Plus has an improved algorithm for
    calculating space required for a successful backup.
    Excluded VMDKs will no longer be factored into the space
    requirements.
