Failing over a Remote Copy group manually

Perform a failover if the source system becomes unavailable, or to perform maintenance on the source system.


Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends performing this task during planned downtime or low I/O activity as connectivity is impacted.

  1. Stop the Remote Copy group.

    If the auto synchronize policy is enabled and the replication mode is synchronous, you do not need to stop the group.

  2. On the HPE SSMC main menu, select Remote Copy Groups under DATA PROTECTION.
  3. In the list pane, select the Remote Copy group, and then select Actions > Failover.
  4. Click Failover.
  5. To confirm the failover, select the check box about understanding the implications, and then click Yes, failover.
