Before deleting an Oracle hierarchy or instance, make sure that the hierarchy is active (green) on its primary server. You may also wish to remove the dependencies before deleting the hierarchy; otherwise, the dependencies will be deleted also.
Deleting an Oracle hierarchy accomplishes the following:
- Stops the Oracle services.
- Deletes the Oracle hierarchy and all dependencies.
- Make sure both servers are active when a delete is initiated for LifeKeeper to properly withdraw the databases from the backup server.
- If you want the IP address and volume to remain under LifeKeeper protection, you should delete volume and TCP/IP dependencies prior to deletion.
To delete a resource hierarchy from all the servers in your LifeKeeper environment, complete the following steps:
- On the Edit menu, select Resource, then Delete Resource Hierarchy.
- Select the Target Server where you will be deleting your Oracle resource hierarchy and click Next.. (This dialog will not appear if you selected the Delete Resource task by right clicking on a resource instance in either pane.)
- 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.
- An information box appears confirming your selection of the target server and the hierarchy you have selected to delete. Click Next.
- Another information box appears confirming that the Oracle resource was deleted successfully.
- Click Done to exit.
