Maintaining a Resource Hierarchy

You can perform maintenance on a resource hierarchy while maintaining LifeKeeper protection of all other hierarchies on the system. This involves taking the hierarchy in need of maintenance out of service and then bringing it back in-service after you complete the maintenance tasks.

To perform maintenance on a resource hierarchy:

  1. Take the hierarchy out of service. Use the LifeKeeper GUI to take as much of the resource hierarchy out of service as you need to perform the maintenance. See Taking a Resource Out of Service for instructions.

  2. Perform maintenance. Perform the necessary maintenance on the resource hierarchy.

  3. Restore the hierarchy. Use the LifeKeeper GUI to bring the resource hierarchy back in service. See Bringing a Resource In Service for instructions.
