Clear recovery mode

After restoring a storage array configuration, use the Clear Recovery Mode operation to resume I/O on the storage array and return it to normal operations.

Before you begin

About this task

The storage array contains a configuration database that includes a record of its logical configuration (pools, volume groups, volumes, and so on). If you intentionally clear the storage array configuration or if the configuration database gets corrupted, the storage array enters recovery mode. Recovery mode stops I/O and freezes the configuration database, which gives you time to do one of the following:

After the storage array configuration has been restored or redefined and you have verified that all is well, you must manually clear recovery mode.

Note: You cannot cancel the Clear Recovery Mode operation after it starts. Clearing recovery mode can take a long time. Perform this operation only when instructed to do so by technical support.

Procedure

  1. Select Support > Support Center > Diagnostics tab.
  2. Select Clear Recovery Mode, and confirm that you want to perform this operation.
    This option appears only if the storage array is in recovery mode.
