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
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 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:
- Right click on your parent level resource and select Remove Dependency…
- Select the appropriate Source Server and click Next
- Under Child Resource, select your Volume from the drop down list and click Next
- 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:
- Right click on Volume/Volume Hierarchy and select Delete Resource Hierarchy . . .
- Select the Target Server, then select Next
- 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.
- In the DataKeeper UI > Action Panel, select Delete Job
- Select Yes when prompted “Are you sure you want to delete the ‘Volume (drive)’ and its mirror?”
If you have multiple mirrors/targets, select Delete Mirror and the jobs will be deleted also.
