How to increase the size of the VERITAS Volume Replicator (tm) log volume

Solution



This volume should be increased whenever additional data volumes are introduced to the replication data set. In a case where communication is lost between the primary and secondaries, the storage replicator log (SRL) may have to hold all the transactions intended for the data volumes. This implies that a replication volume's capacity should equal that of all the replicated data volumes combined. The following steps show how to increase the replication log volume:

1. Stop the Primary replicated volume group (RVG) by right-clicking on it and choosing Stop
2. Stop all Secondary RVGs by right-clicking on them and choosing Stop  
3. Detach all Secondary RVGs by right-clicking on them and choosing Detach
4. In the replication network, browse to the replicator log volume under all of the RVGs, right-click and choose Disassociate Replicator Log  
5. Resize the replicator log volume in Volume Manager under "volumes" by right-clicking on its name and choosing resize. Repeat the process for all secondaries
Note: It is recommended that the replicator log volume be the same size on all secondaries.  
6. In the replication network, browse to the replicator log volume under all RVGs, right-click and choose Associate Replicator Log  
7. Attach all secondaries by right-clicking on them and choosing Attach. Choose the Force option when reattaching to avoid the full resync
8. Start all secondaries by right-clicking on them and choosing Start  
9. Start Primary by right-clicking on it and choosing Start
