Bringing a DataKeeper resource in service is similar to creating the resource: LifeKeeper starts the nbd server and client, starts the md device which synchronizes the data between the source and target devices, and mounts the file system (if applicable).

  1. Right-click on the DataKeeper resource instance from the right pane.
  1. Click In Service from the popup menu. A dialog box appears confirming the server and resource that you have selected to bring into service. Click In Service to bring the resource into service.
  1. An information box shows the results of the resource being brought into service. Any resource dependencies associated with the action are noted in the confirmation dialog. Click Done.
