Remove RCFC relationship when both are in primary state

Hi,

I have an RCFC relationship which I'm trying to remove, however it complains that both systems are in a primary state.

Is it possible to force the removal of the remote copy group without resyncing the volumes at primary or secondary?

Hi

Can you supply the following information for both the Primary and Secondary sites, redacting any confidential information?
What we are looking for is the status of the Remote Copy Group and the TPGID number of the Vluns.  Indicate what should be the Primary site.

showversion
showrcopy -d groups groupname [the affected gorup]
showvlun -v -sortcol vvnames [the vvs in remote copy group]

You need to reorder: showvlun -sortcol 1 -v vvnames [comma separated VVs in RC group]

Why do I need to supply this information? 

 

Can it be done, or not?  If yes, how.

The information is required to check the remote copy group and the virtual volumes in it.  We have experience a similar issue and would like to check your status so see if the fix we have will work for you.
