Configuring Archive Node replication

You can configure the replication settings for an Archive Node and disable inbound and outbound replication, or reset the failure counts being tracked for the associated alarms.

Before you begin

Steps

  1. Select Grid.
  2. Select Archive Node > ARC > Replication.
  3. Click Configuration > Main .

    Configuration page for an Archive Node > Replication settings
  4. Modify the following settings, as necessary:
    • Reset Inbound Replication Failure Count: Select to reset the counter for inbound replication failures. This can be used to clear the RIRF (Inbound Replications – Failed) alarm.
    • Reset Outbound Replication Failure Count: Select to reset the counter for outbound replication failures. This can be used to clear the RORF (Outbound Replications – Failed) alarm.
    • Disable Inbound Replication: Select to disable inbound replication as part of a maintenance or testing procedure. Leave cleared during normal operation.

      When inbound replication is disabled, object data can be retrieved from the ARC service for replication to other locations in the StorageGRID Webscale system, but objects cannot be replicated to this ARC service from other system locations. The ARC service is read‐only.

    • Disable Outbound Replication: Select the checkbox to disable outbound replication (including content requests for HTTP retrievals) as part of a maintenance or testing procedure. Leave unchecked during normal operation.

      When outbound replication is disabled, object data can be copied to this ARC service to satisfy ILM rules, but object data cannot be retrieved from the ARC service to be copied to other locations in the StorageGRID Webscale system. The ARC service is write‐only.

  5. Click Apply Changes.
