Question - How to reboot data domain without affecting replication?

Jump to solution

Hi everyone;

Sorry if this seems like a simply question, but I couldn't find a definitive answer anywhere. I have two DD640's that replicate 4 MTree's over WAN. I need to shut down one of the down to physically move the hardware to a different location in my server rack.

Do I need to Disable replication before shutting the DD640 down? If so, is this accomplished by using the "Disable Pair" button under Replication->Automatic?

My DD OS is 5.7.4.

Thanks!

Anthony

To be honest, you do not really need to do anything. You just reboot one of the DataDomains and once it is back online and has connectivity against the destination, replication will resume. However, I normally recommend to disable the replication pairs on the DataDomain that is being rebooted replication disable all (from cli) And re-enable them once back online. replication enable all When you enable the replication, it directly tries to connect against the destination and the replication resumes if there is no network error. Bear in mind that you need to do a replication disable, not a replication break, which is a totally different thing Hope it helps. Gonzalo

This will not require a reboot, however, existing TCP connections are not affected. So we have a issue which will be taken care of assuming no physical network issues in that case please visit the website.
