Re: Oracle Database LUN Remotecopy

If the Remote Copy Group is set for periodic replication, then the snapshot to the secondary volumes happens at effectively random times. You would want the replication to start while the database is in a consistent state. Set the RCG to have a period of zero, and use an external OS-based job to 1) put the database in hot backup mode, 2) have the primary system start a syncrcopy of the RCG, and once the syncrcopy is started, 3) put the database back to normal mode.

The HPE 3PAR Command Line Interface Administrator's Manual discusses running the HPE 3PAR Command Line Interface (chapter 4). See the section in the chapter on using SSH.
