Preparing the primary and secondary sites for upgrading SFW HA in a VVR environment

Product: SFW HA

Platform: Windows

Version: 6.0

To upgrade the SFW HA cluster in a VVR environment, you must first stop the replicated volume group (RVG) to detach the replication links and deassociate the replication logs between the primary and secondary site.

Perform the following steps from any one of the cluster node at the primary site

  1. Using the Cluster Manager offline the application that uses VVR to replicate data between the sites.

  2. From the command prompt run the vxprint -lVP command.

  3. Verify that the data on the Replicator Log is written to the secondary site and the RLINKSs are up-to-date.

  4. Using the Cluster Manager, take the VvrRvg resource offline in the VVR replication service group.

  5. Detach the RLINK to prevent VVR from replicating data to the secondary site. From the Veritas Enterprise Administrator console, right-click the secondary RVG and select the Stop Replication option to stop VVR from replicating to the secondary site.

  6. Disassociate the Replicator Log from the RVG. From the Veritas Enterprise Administrator console, right-click the Replicator Log and select Dissociate Replicator Log option from the menu that appears.
