Issue



Trying to Make Secondary in a VVR environment, the action fails with the error "V-106-58644-699 - Operation not allowed. The RVGPrimary cluster resource is already configured for this RVG"


Error



"V-106-58644-699 - Operation not allowed. The RVGPrimary cluster resource is already configured for this RVG"


Environment



SFW 5.x and SFW HA 5.x with VVR option


Cause



After a failure of the primary site and the migration to DR Site, if the primary site is not available during the migrate, it can happen that both the sites are shown as "Primary" when all the systems are restored. This is visible in VEA and even running the command "VxPrint -lVP" that shows both the RVGs working as primary and attached.


Solution



The easiest and safest way to resolve the problem is to delete the RDS in any of the sites (in VEA Replication Network) and recreating the RDS from scratch.

If one of the sites has a cluster, RDS cannot be deleted because of VvrRvg resources pointing to it.

In this case, the RVG attribute of the VvrRgg Resource need to be edited in the Cluster Console, renaming it in a different way.

This has to be done in both the sites.

After deleting the RDS and recreating it back, the original value of RVG attribute needs to be restored.
