Deleting a Multigroup

This section describes procedures to delete a multigroup. This operation has no effect on the protection groups that are configured in the deleted multigroup.

Alternatively, if you intend to delete a site that references the multigroup you want to delete, instead follow How to Delete a Site. When you delete a site, all multigroups that the site references are automatically deleted as well.

How to Delete a Multigroup

Perform this procedure to delete a multigroup from all clusters of a site where the multigroup exists.

Note -  You can also use the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager browser interface to perform this task. Click Sites, click the site name to go to its page, highlight the multigroup name, and click Delete. 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

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. From a node of a controller cluster of the site where the multigroup exists, assume the root role or assume a role that is assigned the Geo Management rights profile.
  2. Delete the multigroup.
    controller-cluster-node# geomg delete multigroup
  3. Verify that the multigroup is deleted.
    controller-cluster-node# geomg show multigroup
