  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -file pair.txt swap

    Swap the SRDF personality of the SRDF devices mentioned in the pair file. Source R1 devices become target R2 devices, and target R2 devices become source R1 devices. The SRDF link status must be NotReady for this operation.
  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -file rdf.txt deletepair -force

    Delete the srdf pairing between R1/R2 and return them to stanadard.
  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -file rdf.txt movepair -new_rdfg 4

    Moves the SRDF devices from rdf group 3 to 4.We need to split the pair before doing this operation.
  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -file rdf.txt query

    Query the Devices by using device pair file.
  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -file rdf.txt set mode acp_disk

    Change the current SRDF mode of the pair file devices to Adaptive disk mode.
  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -file rdf.txt set mode acp_wp

    Change the current SRDF mode of the pair file devices to Adaptive Copy write pending mode.
  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -file rdf.txt set mode sync

    Change the current SRDF mode of the pair file devices to Synchronous
  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -file rdf_pair.txt query -i 5

    Queries the pair devices mentioned in the pairfile "rdf_pair.txt" in every 5 seconds.This command also shows the estimated time to sync up all the devices if those are currently in "sync in progress" state.
  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -type rdf1 -file rdf.txt createpair -establish -rdf_mode sync

    Establish the SRDF relation between the devices given in the file rdf.txt from array 1234(R1) and remote box according to the rdf group .This command start copying between R1 and R2 in SYNC mode.( default is acp_disk mode )
  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -type rdf1 -file rdf.txt createpair -invalidate R2

    Establish the SRDF relation between the devices given in the file rdf.txt from array 1234(R1) and remote box according to the rdf group .This command can be used to just create the pair without starting the data copy from R1 to R2 .
  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -type rdf1 -file rdf.txt establish -full

    This command start full copy from R1 to R2 devices. The SRDF pairs are already created .
  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -type rdf1 -file rdf.txt failover

    This will make the R1 devices Write Disabled , R2 Write Enabled to host , and logical connections between R1 to R2 in to Not Ready state.
  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -type rdf1 -file rdf.txt split

    Split the R1 and R2 devices by stopping the replication. This will make R2 also in Read/Write mode along with R1 . The link will go to NotReady(NR) state.
  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -type rdf1 -file rdf.txt suspend

    Suspend the replication from R1 to R2 devices.R1 will be in R/W, R2 in W/D and link will be in NR state.
  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -type rdf1 -file rdf.txt -g mydg createpair -establish

    Establish the SRDF relation between the devices given in the file rdf.txt from array 1234(R1) and remote box according to the rdf group .This command start sync between R1 and R2 and also add these devices after creating the device group mydg
  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -type rdf1 -file rdf.txt failback

    Changes made on R2 will be copied to R1. The R1 devices will be Write Enabled, R2 Write Disabled to host, and logical RDF link between R1 to R2 into Ready state.
  • symrdf -sid 1234 -rdfg 3 -type rdf1 -file rdf.txt resume

    Resume the suspend the replication from R1 to R2 devices.R1 will be in R/W, R2 in W/D and link will be in ready state.
