SFHA Solutions 6.1 (Linux): Change replication direction using vfradmin job promote and vfradmin job recover commands
The File Replicator (VFR) vfradmin command now supports the job promote and job recover keywords that enable you to change the file replication direction with a single command. You can use the job recover command after a disaster occurrs, and the job promote command under normal circumstances.
Use cases for the vfradmin job promote and vfradmin job recover commands include:
- Performing a VFR switchover
- Performing a VFR failover after a disaster
- Recovering a failed site if the failed source node comes up again
- Recovering a failed site if a new node is assigned as the target
