Problem

This issue usually appear when some SLP's are able to trigger duplication job but few specific individual SLP's in the environment are not able to trigger duplication job.

Duplication job will not start as duplication operation is showing status "inactive". We can't change the state of duplication operation from inactive to active using GUI or using below command

nbstlutil active -lifecycle <slp_name>

Error Message

At GUI, SLP will keep on showing active status but duplication operation will show inactive state at command line when we run below command  in order to check it's state.

Example:- SLP name is Test

nbstl Test -all_versions -L

Cause

This issue happen when something goes wrong while changing the status of SLP from active to inactive and vice versa
 

Solution

Run below command to change the status from inactive to active of duplication operation in SLP:-

nbstlutil active -lifecycle <slp_name> -destination <storage unit of the operation showing inactive status>

Example,

nbstlutil active -lifecycle Test -destination stu_adv_nbmaster2

SLP secondary  operation will start showing status active and it will trigger in some time.

nbstl Test -all_versions -L
