I believe that I’ve followed the instructions for setting up a replication but I’m still stymied. I’m trying to set up replication between my ‘prod’ machine (‘prod’ is a loose term on a home network) and a test machine. Admittedly, the test machine is not a great hardware setup: it’s an i7 laptop with 4GB memory booting from an 8GB USB memory stick and running a second USB 149GB drive (mechanical drive).
Each appliance has the other one registered successfully. ‘rockstor.local’ is my prod machine and ‘rock2.local’ will host the replica. Based on other posts here, I have verified that the appliance IDs are unique and I also tried deleting the snapshot in between failures. I even went so far as reinstalling rock2 from scratch, as well as wiping the 149GB drive in the process.
rockstor.local is running v4.0.4-0 and rock2.local is running 4.0.6-0. Both OSs are current as of today.
On my initial replication, the sender (rockstor) logged an init error from the receiver, and the receiver (rock2) logged ‘No response received from broker.’ This sounded like it could have been a network timeout even though both are on the same wired 1Gb/s networks.
I deleted the snapshot from the sender and on the next run, it logged that it was unable to create the share (see screenshot). It did create a new snapshot. The receiver logged nothing. This latter scenario is what I was running into prior to wiping and reinstalling rock2.
So I’m a bit lost and it may be that I’m not seeing the obvious. Suggestions are welcome and I’m happy to retrieve logs if needed.
