DRD - How to reboot system on original boot disk

Hi

 

I'm new to DRD so please bear with me.

 

I have a boot disk, disk3.

My clone is on disk4.

 

I have activated and rebooted and the system now is running on disk4.

 

How does on reboot the server back to running on disk3?

 

Regards

Use the setboot command to set your primary boot disk back to disk3.

 

To set the primary boot disk back to disk3 do:

 

# setboot -p /dev/rdisk/disk3

 

Then reboot.

Great, thanks, but I thought there would be a DRD command which made the switch.

Hi all,

 

Maybe it too late to answer, but you have the drd activate commando to do so. The drd activate command swaps between one disk and the other, so if you want to boot from the other disk, you can issue this command and for the next boot the original disk will be the one used.
