Failing over an SLD Remote Copy group manually

Perform a failover to one of the target systems if the source system becomes unavailable, or to perform maintenance on the source system. The target must be functioning properly and not affected by the situation that took the primary system offline.

  1. On the HPE SSMC main menu, select Remote Copy Groups under DATA PROTECTION.
  2. In the list pane, select the SLD Remote Copy group, and then select Actions > Stop.
  3. Select All targets.
  4. Select Actions > Failover.
  5. Select the target system to which you want to fail over in the Failover to drop-down list.
  6. If you do not want the Remote Copy groups on the target system to start after role reversal, select Do not start groups after role reversal is completed.
  7. Click Failover.
  8. To confirm the failover, select the check box about understanding the implications, and then click Yes, failover.
