Taking a DataKeeper Resource Out of Service

Taking a DataKeeper resource out of service removes LifeKeeper protection for the resource. It breaks the mirror, unmounts the file system (if applicable), stops the md device and kills the nbd server and client.

WARNING:  Do not take your DataKeeper resource out of service unless you wish to stop mirroring your data and remove LifeKeeper protection. Use the Pause operation to temporarily stop mirroring.

  1. In the right pane of the LifeKeeper GUI, right-click on the DataKeeper resource that is in service.

  2. Click Out of Service from the resource popup menu.

  3. A dialog box confirms the selected resource to be taken out of service. Any resource dependencies associated with the action are noted in the dialog. Click Next.

  4. An information box appears showing the results of the resource being taken out of service. Click Done
