Pausing, resuming, and restoring are temporary states through which the RLINK transitions when doing a
Restore, respectively. If these states persist, it means that the command failed halfway through the execution. Recovery from these states is simple.
If the state is pausing, it means that some error prevented the pause operation from completing. The error is displayed during execution of the
pause command. When the error is corrected, the next
pause command will succeed.
If the state is resuming, it means that some error prevented the resume operation from completing. The error is displayed during execution of the
resume command. When the error is corrected, the next
resume command will succeed.
If the state is restoring, a
restore command failed. You must execute either a
-w pause command to put the RLINK back into the fail state, or a
restore command to put it into the active state.
Two other Veritas Volume Replicator commands also use two-phase transactions. If these commands fail after executing partially, they can be safely repeated. The commands are:
vxrvg recover command fails, the state of the object will still be recover. Veritas Volume Replicator commands that do two-phase transactions report an error message and have a nonzero exit code if they fail.
