How do I stop the replication between the Source and Target volumes?
Replication occurs at the driver level and can only be stopped or interrupted by sending a command from the DataKeeper GUI or the DataKeeper command line (EMCMD) to the DataKeeper driver to do one of the following:
- PAUSE the mirror – Mirror endpoints still exist, but all replication is suspended. Writes are tracked on the source system so only a partial resync of the data is necessary to bring the target volume back into sync when the mirror is CONTINUED.
- BREAK the mirror – Mirror endpoints still exist, but all replication is suspended. Writes to the source system are not tracked. RESYNCING the mirror will initiate a full resync of the data which is required to bring the target volume back into sync with the source.
- DELETE the mirror – Mirror endpoints are deleted and replication stops.
