Dissociating a data volume from its RDS
Use the Dissociate Volume dialog box to remove a data volume from an RDS. The Dissociate Volume task only dissociates the data volume from the RVGs in an RDS; it does not delete the volume.
If you want the data volumes on the Primary and the Secondary hosts to be consistent after they are dissociated, stop the application, and make sure that the Secondaries are up-to-date and consistent before dissociating a data volume.
To remove a data volume from its RDS even when the application has not been stopped, select Force Dissociate from the Dissociate Volume dialog box.
