Start, Suspend, Resume, or Abort Data Replication Activity for a Replication Pair

Before You Begin

Required Capability: Capabilities and Permitted Actions

To Start/Suspend/Resume/Abort a Replication Pair:

  • In the CommCell Browser, right-click a Replication Pair, and select Start, Start Full Resync, Suspend, Resume, or Abort.

    From the Replication Pair level, you cannot Suspend a Replication Pair that is in the Replicating state; instead, do this from the Replication Set level. See, Suspend Data Replication Activity from the Replication Set for step-by-step instructions.

Suspend Data Replication Activity from the Replication Set

Before You Begin

Required Capability: Capabilities and Permitted Actions

To suspend all data replication activity from the Replication Set level:

  1. In the CommCell Browser, right-click a Replication Set in the source machine, and select All Tasks, then select Suspend Data Transfer.
  2. For Windows, if you Suspend Data Transfer for one Replication set, you will be prompted with a list of Replication Set that have the same destination.

    If you click Yes all Replication Pairs on that source computer which use the same destination computer will be placed in the Paused state, even those that are in different Replication Sets.

    For UNIX, data replication activities are suspended for all Replication Pairs in the Replication Set.

Resume Data Replication Activity from the Replication Set

Before You Begin

Required Capability: Capabilities and Permitted Actions

To resume all data replication activity from the Replication Set level:

  1. In the CommCell Browser, right-click a Replication Set in the source machine, and select All Tasks, then select Resume Data Transfer.
  2. For Windows, you will be prompted with a list of Replication Set that have the same destination.

    Click Yes to resume all Replication Pairs between this source and destination - including the replication pairs in other replication sets.

    Click No to resume only the Replication Pairs in this replication set.

    For UNIX, data replication activities are resumed for all Replication Pairs in the Replication Set.
