We have a new Hitachi VSP on sight and forgive me being a bit new to the terminology.
What I'm looking for is confirmation on the steps for performing a pairresync quick restore.
Starting from an established pair in suspended state, with the P-Vols mounted on serverA and the S-Vols mounted on ServerB.
The goal is to restore back to the S-Vols on ServerB without a resync occuring. A swap and freeze if you like.
1) On both servers stop applications using the Hitachi disk.
Varyoff volume groups.
Export volume groups.
Remove disk devices.
2) pairresync -IM0 -g groupname -restore -fq mode=quick
3) Reverse of step one.
Import volume group.
Any comments appreciated.
I couldn't find in the PDFs about the export/import of the volume groups, so I'm not sure if those steps are required.
