Leaving or Deleting a Partnership

This section describes how to leave or delete a partnership. Because the geops leave-partnership command destroys the local partnership configuration information, when the last member leaves a partnership, the partnership no longer exists.

You can alternatively use the geops command to remove a cluster from a partnership and release all the resources that are associated with the partnership.

How to Leave or Delete a Partnership

Once you complete this procedure for one cluster in the partnership, repeat it for the other partner cluster.

Note -  You can also accomplish this procedure by using the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager browser interface. Click Partnerships, highlight the name of the partnership, and click Leave Partnership. 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:

  1. Log in to a cluster node.
  2. Verify that the partnership does not contain any protection groups.
    # geopg list

    If the partnership contains protection groups, you can delete them with the geopg delete command. For information about deleting protection groups, see Deleting Protection Groups and Data Replication Components.

  3. Remove the partnership on a node of the cluster that is a member of the partnership.
    # geops leave-partnership partnership-name

    Specifies the name of the partnership

    Note -  The geops leave-partnership command deletes the heartbeats configured for the partnership, including custom heartbeats.

    For more information, refer to the geops(1M) man page.

Example 5  Leaving a Partnership

In this example, the cluster-paris cluster leaves the paris-newyork-ps partnership.

phys-paris-1# geops leave-partnership paris-newyork-ps
Example 6  Deleting a Partnership

After the cluster-paris cluster leaves the paris-newyork-ps partnership, as described in the previous example, the only remaining member of the partnership is the cluster-newyork cluster. You can delete the paris-newyork-ps partnership by forcing the cluster-newyork cluster to leave the partnership.

phys-newyork-1# geops leave-partnership paris-newyork-ps
