Perform this procedure to transfer all operation of protection groups in a multigroup to partner clusters in the specified site.
Caution - To avoid possible loss of replicated data, use instead the geomg switchover command. The geomg takeover command is intended only for situations where the potential risk of data loss is justified, such as when the primary site is not available or during unplanned downtime.
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 ACL applied for compatibility between the Geo Management rights profile and the data replication software.
# geomg takeover [-f] -s site multigroup
Forces takeover, even if the primary cluster for a protection group in the multigroup is reachable and the protection group is active on that cluster.
The name of the standby site which is to take over the specified multigroup.
The name of the multigroup to take over.
See the geomg(1M) man page for information about additional options for the takeover subcommand.
