Validating a Protection Group

If the configuration status of a protection group is displayed as Error in the geoadm status output, you can validate the configuration by using the geopg validate command. This command checks the current state of the protection group and its entities.

How to Validate a Protection Group

Note -  You can also accomplish this procedure by using the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager browser interface. Click Partnerships, click the partnership name to go to its page, highlight the protection group name, and click Validate. For Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager log-in instructions, see How to Access Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager in Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.3 System Administration Guide.

Before You Begin

Ensure that the following conditions are met:

  • The protection group you want to validate exists locally.

  • The common agent container is online on all nodes of both clusters in the partnership.

  • You are assigned the Geo Management RBAC rights profile. For more information about RBAC, see Securing Geographic Edition Software.

  1. Log in to one of the cluster nodes.
  2. Validate the configuration of the protection group.

    This command validates the configuration of the protection group on the local cluster only. To validate the protection group configuration on the partner cluster, run the command again on the partner cluster.

    # geopg validate protection-group

    Specifies a unique name that identifies a single protection group

    • If the protection group and its entities are valid, the configuration status of the protection groups is set to OK.

    • If the geopg validate command finds an error in the configuration files, the command displays an error message and the configuration remains in the Error state. Fix the error in the configuration, then rerun the geopg validate command.
