HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA Array Systems - Remote Replication: Fails to Replicate
Attempts to replicate a volume fail. Multiple attempts have displayed any of the following error messages:
Unable to initiate replication of volume 'volume-name'
Unable to establish replication set for volume 'volume-name'.
Issue was caused by Jumbo frames not being supported on the Ethernet switch that was between the two P2000 systems.
Jumbo frames allow more data to be sent, versus a normal Frame. Jumbo Frame is 9000 bytes in size, where as a normal frame is only 1500 bytes in size.
If the end user wants to use Jumbo frames, they will need to verify that the switch between the P2000's supports Jumbo frames.
If the switch does not support Jumbo frames, then that feature should not be enabled on the P2000's. If Jumbo frames are enabled, it will have to be disabled.
