Under normal circumstances, information about a multigroup configuration change is automatically synchronized among all clusters in the multigroup.
This section describes how to manually update the locally known configuration information of a multigroup with the configuration information known to another cluster in the site. Synchronization of a multigroup is normally performed automatically after you add or remove a protection group. You would perform this procedure if synchronization failed for one or more clusters of the multigroup site. The configuration information known to the local cluster is overwritten by information from the specified remote cluster in the site.
Perform this procedure to manually synchronize multigroup configuration information within a site.
Before You Begin
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.
# geomg update remote-site-cluster multigroup-name
