VxVM VVR vradmin ERROR V-5-52-803 Lost connection to host x.x.x.x_SecondaryHost; terminating command execution VxVM VVR vradmin ERROR V-5-52-802 cannot start command execution on Secondary
OS = Linux Redhat 6.2
Storage Foundation version = 6.0 with RP1
NIC's = two .. One NIC(eth0) for users access and second NIC(eth1) is dedicated to replication.
connectivity = Both primary and secondary site nodes can ping successfully
My eth0 has a default gateway to forward the request if locally does not fulfill. My eth1 has a static route configured to make a connection(I define here static route on primary node/LinuxBox as we cannot add two default gateway's each on each NIC on one system ) between primary site to secondary site.
let supose while establish replication and after running the createpri command succesfully when I run the addsec command I gets the following error(between primary eth1 and secondary eth1 NIC on which static route is configured)...Although I can successfully ping the secondary Site Node .... but when I remove the static route and add the default gateway on eth1 (and also remove gateway from eth0 ) I can successfully ran the addsec command .. My question is that why on the static route between primary and secondary Site cannot support the addsec command.
(One more thing to clear the point more: In the first configuration above if I try to eatablish the replication between eth0 from primary to secondary which is configured on gateway , I can successfully run the addsec command)

Please Note the command which I ran to add the static route on Linux box:
route add -host destinationSite_IP_for Replication gw Gateway_Of_Machine dev ethx
