swap primary mirror copy with secondary

Hi all,

 

Here's my little problem :

I have an 11i v3 integrity server and all LV mirrored on 2 FC disk arrays.

The 1rst disk array is overloaded but not the 2nd one.

 

Is it possible to swap the primary copy with the secondary copy of each LV ?

 

I already know the unmirror/mirror method but is there a smarter way ?

Re: swap primary mirror copy with secondary

I don't think there's a way to do what you want.

 

I'm not sure it would matter much anyway.  My understanding of mirroring is that when reading it is supposed to read from the least busy device.Writes will have to write to both arrays as well.
