metrocluster configuration-settings dr-group create

Create a DR group in a MetroCluster over IP setup

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The metrocluster configuration-settings dr-group create command partners the nodes that will comprise a DR group in a MetroCluster setup.

This command is used for MetroCluster setups that are connected though IP links. MetroCluster setups that are connected through FC links will configure DR groups automatically and do not require the metrocluster configuration-settings commands.

The metrocluster configuration-settings commands are run in the following order to set up MetroCluster:

Before running this command, cluster peering must be configured between the local and partner clusters. Run the cluster peer show command to verify that peering is available between the local and partner clusters. This command configures a local node and a remote node as DR partner nodes. The command also configures the HA partner of the local node and the HA partner of the remote node as the other DR partner nodes in the DR group.

Parameters

-partner-cluster <Cluster name> - Partner Cluster Name
Use this parameter to specify the name of the partner cluster.
-local-node {<nodename>|local} - Local Node Name
Use this parameter to specify the name of a node in the local cluster.
-remote-node <text> - Remote Node Name
Use this parameter to specify the name of a node in the partner cluster that is to be the DR partner of the specified local node.

Examples

The following example shows the creation of the MetroCluster DR group:
clusA::>  metrocluster configuration-settings dr-group  create -partner-cluster clusB -local-node A1 -remote-node B1
[Job 268] Job succeeded: DR Group Create is successful.
