This operation reattaches and resynchronizes an existing snapshot set so that it matches the current state of its original database.
You can perform this operation from the VEA GUI using the VSS Snapback wizard or from the command line using the vxsnap reattach command.
To reattach the split-mirror snapshots using the VEA wizard
The XML metadata file contains all required information needed to snapback the snapshot set, including the names of the database and transaction logs volumes. Click the appropriate header to sort the list of available files by File Name or Creation Time. This file is deleted after the snapback operation has completed successfully.
To reattach the split-mirror snapshots from the command line
> vxsnap -x billing_DB.xml reattach writer=SQLServerWriter
where billing_DB.xml is the name of the XML metadata file created at the time the snapshot set was created.
The complete syntax for the vxsnap reattach command is:
vxsnap -x <filename> [-f][-b] reattach writer=<writername> [secHosts=<secondary hosts>]
See vxsnap reattach.
