To remove an existing DataKeeper Resource/Mirror from Windows Server Failover Clustering:

  • Without impacting the existing role in WSFC, i.e. File Shares, SAP, Oracle, SQL
  • Without having to run various emcmd commands, e.g. deletelocalmirroronly, cleanupmirror

Note: In the DataKeeper UI, “Switchover Mirrors”, “Delete Job” and “Delete Mirror” are grayed out in the Action Panel.

Reason: When a DataKeeper mirror is or becomes a part of a cluster/WSFC all administration takes place at the WSFC level.

Steps to Remove:

In Failover Cluster Manager:

  1. From the Roles panel, select Storage and the related DataKeeper Volume
  1. Right click and select Remove from the role you’ve created, then select Yes
  1. From WFSC select Storage\Disk

The DataKeeper Volume is now listed as/Assigned To, Available Storage.

  1. Select Remove then select Yes

The DataKeeper Storage is no longer a resource in the cluster/WSFC.

  1. In the DataKeeper UI > Action Panel, select Delete Job. You will be prompted …“Are you sure you want to delete the ‘Volume (drive)’ and its mirror? Select Yes

If you have multiple mirrors/targets, select Delete Mirror, and the jobs will be deleted also.
