Remote Copy SLD reverse roles operation

A switch failover operation reverses the role of two target systems in an SLD group.

For example: A failover occurred from the source system to the synchronous target system changing the synchronous system role to Primary-Rev. To change the Primary-Rev role to the periodic target system, perform a switch failover.

  • Changes the Remote Copy SLD group Target role of the target systems. The primary-rev system becomes secondary and the secondary system becomes the primary-rev system.

  • Changes the replication direction.

  • Provides the host with read/write access to the volumes on the primary-rev system.
