Dear All Experts

Enviornment is of SFHA

We have a Service Group of Application running, We need to remove old replication service group and add a new one, Old replication service group has been removed already.

My concern to this activity is, will we face downtime to application service group while adding a new replication service group and linking it with the application service group to have a complete SFHA ??

If anyone can help, please guide me to above matter as we cannot face downtime on application and if possible kindly provide me the steps.

Note: Disks are coming from SAN and application is also runnig from there.

Thanks

Yes you can add these services on the fly. Please have a look at this VVR agent guide. I don't know what version you are using but this is the BARG for solaris.

Or you can go to SORT and review the complete guide.

What are the differences between the old service group and new one you want to add  and can you provide main.cf to show current config

Hello mikebounds, we had replaced disks further some client concerns were there, therefore it was planned to create a new service group for replication, well anyhow that issue has been resolved successfully by the team I work with.

Thanks for your support
