Replication Network stuck at "Activating"

Mark_Shoger

I just had to recreate a replication set for an EV cluster (GCO only, no local HA) on SFHA/Win. I used the "Setup RDS" wizard and it created the primary without error and then the secondary.

Now the secondary is sitting in "Activating" status and doesn't appear to be doing anything.

Did I miss something or is there a guide available for manually creating RDS? I'm an EV guy trying to fill a departed SFHA guy's shoes...

VLAN issues with routing between subnets were to blame. Fixed this and replication immediately went Active.

Try running "vxprint -VPl" on both sides. Make sure that the IP address and hostnames match each other. Also make sure that you can ping the "remote_host" from the other site (try this both ways).

Note: That's VPl with a lower case L (not a 1).

I ran the vxprint on both sides (they can ping each other) here's the output:
