How to Remove a Data Replication Component From a Protection Group

Use the following procedure to remove a data replication component from 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, click the protection group name to go to its page, highlight the data replication component name, and click Remove. 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 is defined on the local cluster.

  • The protection group is offline on the local cluster and the partner cluster, if the partner cluster can be reached.

  • The data replication component is managed by the protection group.

  • If you use a role with Geo Management rights, ensure that the /var/cluster/geo access control lists (ACLs) are correct on each node of both partner clusters. If necessary, assume the root role on the cluster node and set the correct ACLs.

    # chmod A+user:username:rwx:allow /var/cluster/geo

    The /var/cluster/geo directory must have the correct ACL applied for compatibility between the Geo Management rights profile and data replication software.

    For more information, see Securing Geographic Edition Software in Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.3 Geographic Edition Installation and Configuration Guide.

  1. Assume the root role or assume a role that is assigned the Geo Management rights profile.
  2. Remove the data replication component.
    # geopg remove-replication-component replication-component protection-group

    Specifies the name of the data replication component.


    Specifies the name of the protection group.
