SEPM Replication Stopping via command

Created: 23 Aug 2013 | 16 comments

HI All,

We are running SEP 12.1 RU 1 MP 1 on a windows 2008 environment having a DC-DR setup. We are having DC to DR replication on daily basics and is there any command to disable and enable  the replication between SEPM ?

The GUI steps  that we are following to the same .

1.    In the console, click Admin > Servers.

2.    Under Servers, expand Replication Partners and select a site.

3.    Right-click the site, and then click Delete.

4.    Click Yes.

5.    Log off the console, and then repeat this procedure at all sites that replicate data

Regards

Ajin

doesnt the scheduled replication help?

if you wantto stop, you can stop SEPM service using command.

HI Pete,

Thanks for the reply.

Scheduling will help but, we need to stop the replication. What we are following is deleting replication partner and adding it again for recurring replication.

The details of the replication partners are in the datadase. They can't be deleted by simple commands.

May be you can try writing scripts using java or posershell (with the database username and password included in the script). But thats not recommended.

HI,

Thanks for the reply.

We are planning to do it via script.

To be honest, the easiest method I can think of would actually be to create a FW rule to block 8443 between the two SEPMs.  That way they still think they're replication partners, and you won't have to go through the whole process of re-adding the replication partner again after each deletion.  Just flick the rule on and off as required.

Do you have a specific requirement to delete the replication partnership?  Can you give more information as to what you're trying to accomplish?  If it is just traffic management, then scheduling is really the way to go.

HI,

Thanks for the reply.

But it is mandatory to have ADC component installed on the SEPM Servers.

Blocking by FW doesn't necessarily mean it has to be the SEP FW.  As these SEPMs are (presumably) on different sites, any physical firewalls will work just as well.

Also, I'm not sure what you mean by A&DC.  You don't have to have A&DC installed for the SEP FW (even in SEP11 it was the other way around, NTP was a prerequisite for A&DC).

Hi,

I'm reading through threads that may help me understand the upgrade from 12.1.3 to 12.1.4

I understand that each Replication Partner needs disabling before the upgrade can take place. However all I'm reading is stopping or deletion to the Replication Partner. Surely I either;

Stop Replication, Disable Replication or Delete Replication.

Now stopping or disabling a service I understand, it's vertially the same thing. However, deleting a service indicates a drastic measure in my eyes so please could I have the process of disabling replication explained before upgrading the SEPM.

You just need to disable (delete), upgrade, re-add once complete. See these:
