This is for SRDF/S. SRDF/A is some more complex.
Following are some typical steps for SRDF/S operations. I hope it will helpful to you.
To get the details, please refer "SRDF Control Operations Guide" attached. Its an excellent handbook.
Display info. about R1 and R2 devices
# symrdf list
# symdev list R1
# symdev list R2
Create device group & add devices into it
# symdg create <devicegroupname> -type <grouptype>
# symld -g <devicegroupname> -sid XXXX add dev <devicename>
# symdg show show <grouptype>
Querying & listing device group & devices
# symrdf -g <devicegroupname> query
# symcfg list
# symdev show <devicename>
# symcfg list -ra all ( displays RLD info. by reaching symm units one or two hops away)
# symrdf -g <devicegroupname> -noprompt split
# symrdf -g <devicegroupname> -noprompt establish
# symrdf -g <devicegroupname> -noprompt restore
# symrdf -g <devicegroupname> -noprompt failover
# symrdf -g <devicegroupname> -noprompt update
Wow Sanjay that paper is really, really old! I haven't been deep into SAN myself for about 3 years now (started working more on the network management side), but I would imagine that some of those commands may be outdated. (SAN guys help me out?).
Your best bet is always to go to Powerlink for the most up-to-date documentation.
Just a reminder to everyone - as long as these technical questions aren't talking about production environments, its ok to have them here. If the threads start getting to specific to actual environments, its really better to have the conversation over in the EMC Support Forums.
Also, I'm moving this thread up to the main Proven Professional community. The Advisor section is really more for getting advice on the certification exams, courses to take, etc.
Once we create a Device Group, Add devices to device group, Set Mode on the local & remote machine. How does the system know that it has to transfer data to a particular devices in the Device Groups.?
Do we have to specify any relationship b/w R1(newsrcdg) & R2(newtgtdg) device group?
