Thanks for the path. On that it has only how to add device pair to SRDF/A. How we can remove device pair from SRDF/A . Please let know the steps and command giude
Is this steps is correct
Deleting Srdf/A Pair file
symrdf –g mySRDFAgroup disable -nop
symrdf -g mySRDFAgroup set mode acp_disk -nop
symrdf -rdfg 34 -sid 123 -file /var/tmp/pairfile.rdfg34 susp
symrdf -rdfg 34 -sid 123 -file /var/tmp/pairfile.rdfg34 deletepair -force
symrdf -g mySRDFAgroup set mode async -nop
symrdf –g mySRDFAgroup enable –nop
Thanks Alexey Yakovenko,
Now I got an idea how to pairup devices, create Dynamic Groups and perform Dynamic SRDF operations.
Once again thanks to EMC Community. If anybody could be more explain more by taking an example that would be great.
Sorry to pitch in so late,
How do is set up SRDF/A .Coule of steps i am aware however i am in confused in few steps
1)Create a device group and put the R1 device into that
2) make a file and put the device into that
3) do i need to establish the device in the createpair command only and then put into the Adaptive Copy mode and then set mode to Asyn.Can some one hlep me with the steps.
the below steps will do what u xplained aove
symrdf -v addgrp label testrdfg -rdfg xx -sid 1234 -dir 8c,9c -remote_rdfg xx -remote_sid 4321 -remote_dir 8d,9d
symrdf -sid 1234 createpair -f filename -type rdf1 -rdfg xx est -rdf_type acp_disk
symrdf -sid 1234 -f filename -rdfg xx set mode async
symdg import rdfggrpname -f filename
i have read that we need to enable consistancy for SRDF/A...Does that follow the above mentioned steps or this is not necessary.
Suppose i need to add few more devices to the already exsiting SRDF/A replication device group .what are the steps that needs to be followed.
If you wish to add deviced to an existing SRDF/A, you have two options:
1) either use the createpair command along with the ra group which is already in SRDFA
2) create a new ra group then do createpair and then use symrdf movepair command to move to an SRDF/A ra group.
things become little tricky when consistency is enabled for SRDF/A.
