Syntax

resume syncMirror (primary [volumeName] | 
primaries [volumeName1 ... volumeNameN]) 
[writeConsistency=(TRUE | FALSE)]

Parameters

Parameter Description
primary

The name of the primary volume for which you want to resume a Synchronous Mirroring operation. Enclose the primary volume name in square brackets ([ ]). If the primary volume name has special characters or numbers, you must enclose the primary volume name in double quotation marks (" ") inside square brackets.

primaries

The names of several primary volumes for which you want to resume a Synchronous Mirroring operation. Enter the names of the primary volumes using these rules:

  • Enclose all of the names in square brackets ([ ]).
  • Separate each of the names with a space.

If the primary volume names have special characters or consist only of numbers, enter the names using these rules:

  • Enclose all of the names in square brackets ([ ]).
  • Enclose each of the names in double quotation marks (" ").
  • Separate each of the names with a space.
writeConsistency The setting to identify the volumes in this command that are in a write-consistency group or are separate. For the volumes to be in the same write-consistency group, set this parameter to TRUE. For the volumes to be separate, set this parameter to FALSE.

Notes

If you set the writeConsistency parameter to TRUE, the volumes must be in a write-consistency group (or groups). This command resumes all write-consistency groups that contain the volumes. For example, if volumes A, B, and C are in a write-consistency group and they have remote counterparts A’, B’, and C’, the resume syncMirror volume ["A"] writeConsistency=TRUE command resumes A-A’, B-B’, and C-C’.
