break and restore mirroring


break and restore mirroring

Dear everyone,

Im a newdie for Tru. I tried to check the disk information from my ds15 server and its seen as below. The way I interpret it is that it has one disk group called rootdg and is mirrored.
1) How do I break the mirroring ? So I can get one of the disk and try to mirror it in another machine. Can I just pull off the disk after shutdown.
2) How do I restore back? bring back the mirroring again.
Thanks in advance.

Re: break and restore mirroring

If you are not familiar with LSM, DO NOT do it!
Recovering a broken lsm mirror set sometimes may cause trouble to unexperienced person.
Why don't you use vdump/vrestore.
Since you have ds15, you probably have V5.1B, which is good.

I can write you a cookbok how to restore mirror set, but experience is needed.
