Need help setting up mirror space


Currently we use an async-replicated setup with a primary and backup instance of GSM & GSC and manually backup the space to disk. I am exploring the option of using the mirror space to backup using Hibernate or other methods directly to a database, however, I'm having trouble getting it configured.

Attached is a zip file containing the PU files for the data grid and the mirror spaces, along with a screenshot from the Management Center UI and GSC log for the Mirror.

Please let me know where I'm going wrong or if you need more info. At this stage I can't see the mirror working in the management console and I'm not getting any obvious errors from Spring, Hibernate or any other components.

       Only problem I notice is the container name in the datagridpu.xml for this key below is not correct,
<prop key="cluster-config.mirror-service.url">jini://*/mirror-service_container/SydTest-mirror-service</prop>

Can you modify this key to following and try it again?
<prop key="cluster-config.mirror-service.url">jini:////SydTest-mirror-service</prop>

Also the log file attached is for the space though the name suggests it is for mirror. If the above does not work, could you pelase attach log files from all the GSC's?

Thank you both for your suggestion, and it was indeed a problem. I was also not deploying the containers properly.

I'm now trying to get Hibernate working.
