Error description

  • Data Center Node has vm nodes as filespaces. Backups and
    replication are at the Data Center Level.   A vm node/filespace
    is decommissioned on both the source and target, replication is
    then disabled for this vm's filespace.   When Expiration runs it
    will delete the entries from Filespace_ReplRules table
    associated with the filespace(VM) before deleting the filespace.
    The filespace cannot be deleted as the policy retention has not
    passed. Because the entries from Filespace_ReplRules associated
    with the filespace(VM) have been deleted this will cause
    querying of the filespace, re-enabling the REPLSTATE due to no
    entry in the Filespace_ReplRules for the vm filespace. The
    server assigns it  the default  REPLSTATE of enable.
    
    Replication of a decommissioned vm node should not occur thus
    causing the error.

Local fix

  • 1) Re- disable replication for the decommissioned vm node
    filespace after expiration, before the next replication.
    2) "Delete Filespace" of the decommissioned vm node filespace
