Before you force the secondary cluster to assume the activity of the primary cluster, ensure that the following conditions are met:
Sun Cluster Geographic Edition software is up and running on the cluster.
The cluster is a member of a partnership.
The Configuration status of the protection group is OK on the secondary cluster.
Log in to a node in the secondary cluster.
You must be assigned the Geo Management RBAC rights profile to complete this procedure. For more information about RBAC, see Sun Cluster Geographic Edition Software and RBAC in Sun Cluster Geographic Edition System Administration Guide.
Initiate the takeover.
# geopg takeover [-f] protectiongroupname
Forces the command to perform the operation without your confirmation
Specifies the name of the protection group
This example forces the takeover of srdfpg by the secondary cluster cluster-newyork.
The phys-newyork-1 cluster is the first node of the secondary cluster. For a reminder of which node is phys-newyork-1, see Example Sun Cluster Geographic Edition Cluster Configuration in Sun Cluster Geographic Edition System Administration Guide.
phys-newyork-1# geopg takeover -f srdfpg
For information about the state of the primary and secondary clusters after a takeover, see Appendix C, Takeover Postconditions, in Sun Cluster Geographic Edition System Administration Guide.
