Rejecting an SVM peer relationship

When a cluster administrator creates an intercluster SVM peer relationship, the cluster administrator of the peered cluster can reject the SVM peer request to prevent peer relationship between the SVM by using the vserver peer reject command.

About this task

If the SVM peer request is initiated with an unauthorized SVM, then the cluster administrator of the peered cluster can reject the relationship. Other peering operations cannot be performed on the rejected peering relationship.

Steps

  1. Use the vserver peer show command to view the SVM peer requests on the peered cluster.
    Example
    The following example shows how to view the SVM peer requests on cluster2:
    cluster2::> vserver peer show
                     Peer               Peer
    Vserver          Vserver            State
    -----------      -----------        ------------
    vs5.example0.com vs1.example0.com    pending
    
  2. Use the vserver peer reject command to reject the SVM peer request.
    Example
    The following example illustrates how to reject an incoming SVM peer request between vs1.example0.com and vs5.example0.com on cluster1 and cluster2 respectively:
    cluster2::> vserver peer reject -vserver vs5.example0.com -peer-vserver vs1.example0.com
    
    Info: [Job 48] 'vserver peer reject' job queued
    
    
    The SVM peer relationship is in rejected state.
  3. Use the vserver peer show command on the cluster from which the SVM peer request was created to view the state of the SVM peer relationship.
    Example
    The following example shows how to view to state of the SVM peer relationships:
    cluster1::> vserver peer show
                      Peer               Peer
    Vserver           Vserver            State
    -----------       -----------        ------------
    vs1.example0.com  vs5.example0.com   rejected
  4. Use the vserver peer delete command to delete the rejected SVM peer requests because when you create the SVM relationship between the same SVM again, it fails.
    Example
    The following example shows how to delete the rejected SVM peer requests:
    cluster1::> vserver peer delete -vserver vs1.example0.com -peer-vserver vs5.example0.com
    
    Info: 'vserver peer delete' command is successful.
