Stopping replication to a Secondary

The Stop Replication task enables you to stop replication to a Secondary in an RDS. This operation can be performed on a bunker Secondary also.

  Caution   Do not use the Stop Replication task to temporarily stop replication; instead, use the Pause Replication task.

 To stop replication to a Secondary

  1. Select the Secondary host name from the tree view, and then choose Replication > Stop Replication. To use the pop-up menu, right-click the name of the Secondary.
  2. In the Stop Replication box, click OK. A message indicates whether the stop replication task succeeded or failed.


  • The Stop Replication task fails if the Primary and Secondary are not up-to-date.
  • To stop replication even when the Primary and Secondary are not up-to-date, select Force Stop in the Stop Replication dialog box.
  • When replication is stopped, the RDS View displays the replication status for the Secondary RVG as stopped (primary detached).
