Reversing replication with RESTful API

Stephen BancroftApr 25 2018 — edited Sep 28 2018

I'm trying to develop some Python scripts to manage our ZFS SA with, so far it's going ok and I can do mostly what I want. However I seem to have struck a problem with reversing replication, ie: it does not work, at least on the simulator.

Basically I keep getting 404

    "fault": {
        "code": 404,
        "message": "the requested item was not found (invalid command \"reverse db_aclys02_fcarch\" (encountered while attempting to run command \"confirm reverse db_aclys02_fcarch\"))",
        "name": "ERR_NOT_FOUND"

I know I am doing the PUT correctly to the correct URL


The manual says to PUT data={"projname":"project"} but it seems that produces the 404. I'm stuck at this point, either the manual is incorrect or the simulator is broken. Unfortunately reversing replication is

not something I really what to test on production.

/api/storage/v1/replication/sources/zfssa-00a/packages/ee116371-9558-cab7-a4f0-b652bca81db1     works just fine and produces the expected JSON

Any help is appreciated.
