Deleting a Resource Hierarchy

To delete a DataKeeper resource from all servers in your LifeKeeper configuration, complete the following steps.

Note: It is recommended that you take the DataKeeper resource out of service BEFORE deleting it. Otherwise, the md and NetRAID devices will not be removed, and you will have to unmount the file system manually. See Taking a DataKeeper Resource Out of Service.

  1. On the Edit menu, select Resource, then Delete Resource Hierarchy.

  2. Select the name of the TargetServer where you will be deleting your DataKeeper resource hierarchy.

Note:  If you selected the Delete Resource task by right-clicking from either the left pane on a global resource or the right pane on an individual resource instance, this dialog will not appear.

  1. Select the Hierarchy to Delete. (This dialog will not appear if you selected the Delete Resource task by right-clicking on a resource instance in the left or right pane.) Click Next.

  2. An information box appears confirming your selection of the target server and the hierarchy you have selected to delete. Click Delete.

  3. Another information box appears confirming that the DataKeeper resource was deleted successfully. Click Done to exit.

Note:  If the NetRAID device was mounted prior to the resource deletion then it will remain mounted.  Otherwise, the NetRAID device will also be deleted.
