Before You Begin
Ensure that a partner cluster of the protection group you are adding is configured in the site.
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.
site-controller-cluster-node# geomg add-protection-group protection-group-list multigroup
The syntax choices for protection-group-list are as follows:
Specifies a single protection group: The colon (:) separates the cluster name cluster from the name of the protection group that is configured in that cluster.
Specifies a protection group that has a dependency on another protection group, called a dependency chain: The protection group that is specified before the slash (/) in the dependency chain depends on the protection group that is specified after the slash.
The comma (,) separates multiple protection group names in the protection-group list.
Specifies that multiple protection groups, cluster1:protection-group2 and cluster2:protection-group1, all have a dependency on the cluster3:protection-group1 protection group. In this form of dependency chain, parentheses are only used to enclose the multiple protection groups that have a dependency on another, single protection group. Only one protection group can be specified as the depended-on protection group in the dependency chain.
For more information, see the geomg(1M) man page.
