This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi ,
I have configured tow servers(solaris) in two different subnets. After configuring replication network,the status is described as follows.

Replicated Data Set: DR_RVG
Primary:
Host name: <hostname 1>
RVG name: DR_RVG
DG name: datadg
RVG state: enabled for I/O
Data volumes: 2
VSets: 0
SRL name: data_srl
SRL size: 20.00 G
Total secondaries: 1

Secondary:
Host name: <hostnmae 2>
RVG name: DR_RVG
DG name: datadg
Data status: inconsistent
Replication status: paused due to network disconnection
Current mode: asynchronous
Logging to: SRL (82215 Kbytes behind, 0% full)
Timestamp Information: behind by 0h 16m 8s

can you please tell me what are the possibitlies for this "paused due to network disconnection" problem. Becuase in my servers , no issues with hostnames are piningn. No issues with that

With regards,
sri.

vxprint -Vl <rvg name>
vradmin -g <dg name> -l printrvg <rvg name> 

Just make sure the ip that being used for replication is able to communicate.

also pls provide "vxprint -lP"

I got the exact problem the other day, after I changed server ip address,  as originally I assumed VVR just uses host name from /etc/hosts or from dns to get the ip address for replication.  Actually VVR store the ip address into its configuration, though I configured them by hostname.

After I changeip with vvr, it connected again automatically.  (vradmin changeip)
