Is there a way to suspend multiple hosts when using CA ?

We have about 30 hosts running on an EVA8100 - this EVA8100 is linked to a DR EVA8100 using CA (continuous access).

On Saturday, I need to power down all systems due to electrical work.

Q. Is there a way to suspend the replication of multiple hosts within CommandView, or do I have to do one at a time ?

Help rewarded !!

Re: Is there a way to suspend multiple hosts when using CA ?

Suspension of replication is controlled at the "Data Replication Group" level - a DRG can contain one or more "Copy Sets" and a CS describes the replication from a single source virtual disk to the destination virtual disk.

I don't see the ability to combine multiple DRGs in the current CV-EVA versions, but why not script the suspension / resume with SSSU?

EVA> SET DR_GROUP "\Data Replication\DRG_1" SUSPEND

EVA> SET DR_GROUP "\Data Replication\DRG_1" NOSUSPEND

After you have done a "CAPTURE CONFIGURATION", you can copy&paste the DRG names from the 'Step2' output file.
