In certain scenarios, you can return the systems to the original configuration after using backup and standby.
About this task
This is an optional procedure because you might not need to return the backup configuration to the original systemA
- Ensure that the secondary system and tertiary system have the same data by temporarily blocking SnapVault updates to the secondary system.
Perform the following step from the secondary system, systemC.snapvault snap unsched vol3
- Allow updates to the secondary system to be propagated to the tertiary system.
Perform the following step from the tertiary system, systemB.snapmirror update systemB:vol2
- Reverse the roles of the secondary and tertiary systems, so that what was the secondary becomes the tertiary system and what was the tertiary becomes the secondary system.
Perform the following step from the new tertiary system, systemC:snapmirror resync systemC:vol3
- Release resources locked on systemC for the removed systemC to systemB SnapMirror relationship.
Perform the following step from the new tertiary system, systemC. snapmirror release vol3 systemB:vol2
- Break the SnapMirror relationship on systemB to allow further SnapVault updates from the original SnapVault relationship.
Perform the following step from systemB.snapmirror break vol2
- Re-create the original SnapVault relationship from systemA to systemB.
Perform the following step from systemB (the original secondary system).snapvault update /vol/vol2/qtree3
- Re-create the original SnapMirror relationship from systemB to systemC.
Perform the following step from systemC (the original tertiary system).snapmirror update vol3
- Remove the SnapVault configuration from systemC.
Perform the following step from systemC.snapvault stop [-f] /vol/vol3/qtree3
This command is available on the secondary system only. The command unconfigures the qtree to ensure that are no more updates of the qtree and then deletes the qtree from the active file system.
The -f option forces the snapvault stop command to proceed without first asking for confirmation.
