manually recovers pending transactions
recover-transactions [--help] [--transactionlogdir transaction_log_dir] [--target target_server_name] server_name
recover-transactions subcommand manually recovers pending transactions.
For an installation of multiple server instances, you can run the
recover-transactions subcommand from a surviving server instance to recover transactions after a server failure. To use this subcommand in this way, the following conditions must be met:
Delegated transaction recovery is disabled.
Transaction logs are stored on a shared file system or in a database that is accessible to all server instances.
For a stand-alone server, do not use this subcommand to recover transactions after a server failure. For a stand-alone server, the
recover-transactions subcommand can recover transactions only when a resource fails, but the server is still running. If a stand-alone server fails, only the full startup recovery process can recover transactions that were pending when the server failed.
This subcommand is supported in remote mode only.
Displays the help text for the subcommand.
The location of the transaction logs for a server for which transaction recovery is requested. This option applies only if transaction logs are stored on a shared file system.
The target server that performs the recovery for the server that is specified by the server_name operand. The target server should be running.
This option is deprecated. It works exactly as the
--target option does.
For a stand-alone server, the value of this operand is typically
server. Transactions are recovered only if a resource fails, but the server is still running.
For an installation of multiple server instances, the value of this operand is the name of the server for which the recovery is required. The in-flight transactions on this server will be recovered. If this server is running, recovery is performed by the same server. In this situation, the
--target options should be omitted. If the server is not running, the
--target option is required, and the
--transactionlogdir option is also required if transaction logs are stored on a shared file system.
% asadmin recover-transactions server1 Transaction recovered.
% asadmin recover-transactions --transactionlogdir /logs/tx --target server1 server2 Transaction recovered.
