How to Remove Datakeeper Storage from Lifekeeper


ISSUE: To remove an existing DataKeeper Resource/Mirror from LifeKeeper for Windows:

  • Without impacting the existing resources in LifeKeeper for Windows, i.e. File Shares, Oracle, SQL, DNS

  • Without having to run various emcmd commands, e.g. deletelocalmirroronly, cleanupmirror

REASON: When a DataKeeper mirror is or becomes a part of LifeKeeper for Windows, all administration takes place at the LifeKeeper for Windows level.

Steps to Remove:

In LifeKeeper for Windows:
In the LifeKeeper GUI console, remove the dependency that the Volume is associated with:

  1. Right click on your parent level resource and select Remove Dependency…

  2. Select the appropriate Source Server and click Next

  3. Under Child Resource, select your Volume from the drop down list and click Next

  4. Select Remove Dependency when the dialog pertaining to the Parent/Child dependency appears, then select Done

    Now the Volume Resource is listed as a standalone hierarchy. To remove:

  5. Right click on Volume/Volume Hierarchy and select Delete Resource Hierarchy . . .

  6. Select the Target Server, then select Next

  7. Select Delete when the dialog pertaining to Volume Hierarchy and Target Server removal appears, then select Done

    The DataKeeper Storage is no longer a resource in the LifeKeeper for Windows.

  8. In the DataKeeper UI > Action Panel, select Delete Job

  9. Select Yes when prompted “Are you sure you want to delete the ‘Volume (drive)’ and its mirror?”
