Removing a Secondary from an RDS

Use the Remove Secondary task to remove a Secondary RVG from the RDS to which it belongs. You must stop replication to the specified Secondary before removing it.

  Caution   The Remove Secondary task is irreversible.

 To remove a Secondary

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


    • Replication must be stopped to the Secondary that is being removed. The Remove Secondary task fails if replication to the Secondary is not stopped.
    • The Remove Secondary task does not delete data volumes; it only dissociates them from the Secondary.
    • The Replicated Data Set View displays the updated RDS configuration.
