Sun Cluster Geographic Edition Data Replication Guide for Hitachi TrueCopy

ProcedureHow to Replicate the Hitachi TrueCopy Protection Group Configuration to a Secondary Cluster

Before You Begin

Before you replicate the configuration of a Hitachi TrueCopy protection group to a secondary cluster, ensure that the following conditions are met:

  1. Log in to phys-newyork-1.

    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.

    phys-newyork-1 is the only node on 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.

  2. Replicate the protection group configuration to the partner cluster by using the geopg get command.

    This command retrieves the configuration information of the protection group from the remote cluster and creates the protection group on the local cluster.

    phys-newyork-1# geopg get -s partnershipname [protectiongroup]
    -s partnershipname

    Specifies the name of the partnership from which the protection group configuration information should be retrieved and the name of the partnership where the protection will be created locally.


    Specifies the name of the protection group.

    If no protection group is specified, then all protection groups that exist in the specified partnership on the remote partner are created on the local cluster.

    Note –

    The geopg get command replicates Sun Cluster Geographic Edition related entities. For information about how to replicate Sun Cluster entities, see Replicating and Upgrading Configuration Data for Resource Groups, Resource Types, and Resources in Sun Cluster Data Services Planning and Administration Guide for Solaris OS.

Example 2–15 Replicating the Hitachi TrueCopy Protection Group to a Partner Cluster

This example replicates the configuration of tcpg from cluster-paris to cluster-newyork.

# rlogin phys-newyork-1 -l root
phys-newyork-1# geopg get -s paris-newyork-ps tcpg
