How to convert a VERITAS Volume Replicator (tm) for Windows 2000 primary host to a secondary after a takeover operation
After initiating a takeover* operation with VERITAS Volume
Replicator 3.x for Windows 2000, the former primary (when brought up) will
appear as a primary in a separate replicated data set (RDS). This will result in
two RDSs with the same name. The former primary has to be converted into a
secondary and associated with the new primary. There are two methods to
Method 1. From the VERITAS Enterprise Administrator,
delete the old primary's replicated volume group (RVG). Add it as a secondary to
the new primary in Enterprise Administrator..
Method 2. From the command
line (CLI) run the command vxrds
This command can be used to convert
the specified primary RVG to a secondary and associate it with the RDS to which
the new primary belongs. The
oldsec_hostname parameter specifies the
name of the host which is now the new primary. The
local_rvg parameter specifies the name of the RVG being converted.
This command should only be run after performing the takeover
* Note: A takeover operation promotes a secondary to primary,
and is only available after the primary has been lost. After a takeover
operation, all secondaries to the former primary have to be manually added to
the new primary.
