The Secondary SRL is used only during atomic recovery of an RLINK and when an IBC is active. If I/O errors occur during recovery of the Secondary SRL, the recovery fails, the SRL volume is automatically detached, and the RLINK is forced to the pause state. Manual intervention is required to repair the physical problem, reattach the SRL, and resume the RLINK. Upon resumption, an automatic recovery of the RVG is retried and if it succeeds, update activity can continue. The only problem occurs if the Primary SRL overflows before the repair is complete, in which case a full synchronization is required.
If an error occurs in the data portion of the SRL, the RLINK is forced to the pause state with the
secondary_paused flag set. The SRL is not dissociated.
If an error occurs in the SRL header, the Secondary RVG is forced to the fail state and the SRL is dissociated.
