Sun Cluster Geographic Edition Data Replication Guide for Sun StorageTek Availability Suite

ProcedureHow to Replicate the Sun StorageTek Availability Suite Protection Group Configuration to a Partner Cluster

Before You Begin

Before you replicate the configuration of a Sun StorageTek Availability Suite protection group to a partner 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.

  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.

    # geopg get -s partnershipname AVSprotectiongroup
    -s partnershipname

    Specifies the name of the partnership from which the protection group configuration information is gathered


    Specifies the name of the protection group

    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 2–11 Replicating the Sun StorageTek Availability Suite Protection Group to a Partner Cluster

This example replicates the configuration of avspg to cluster-newyork.

The configuration of the protection group is retrieved from the remote cluster, in this example cluster-paris, and then validated by the data replication subsystem on the local cluster, cluster-newyork.

If the validation is successful, the Configuration status is set to OK and the protection group is created on the local cluster. This protection group contains a device group and an application group that are configured almost identically to the device group and application group on the remote cluster.

If the validation fails, the protection group is not created on the local cluster. Fix the cause of the error and replicate it again.
