How to use Vxprint to verify that the Rlinks, hostnames and IP addresses for the primary and secondary replication partners match each other in Veritas Storage Foundation for Windows - Volume Replicator Option
In VVR (Veritas Volume Replicator), if either replication partner contains invalid information, replication will stop. Each partner may report the other as "disconnected." Vxprint can be used to verify that the Rlinks, hostnames and IP addresses for the primary and secondary replication partners match each other.
1. Run the following command on both sites:
Note: That is an upper-case V, an upper-case P and a lower-case L.
This will return results that are similar to the following:
Figure 1 - Sample Vxprint Results from a Primary
Figure 2 - Sample Vxprint Results from a Secondary
To confirm that the Rlink names, hostnames or IP addresses match for both sites, follow these steps:
1. From the primary vxprint results, locate the following attributes:
Note: There are two instances of assoc found in the vxprint results. These steps refer to the second instance.
2. Ensure that the values of the attributes that were found in the primary vxprint results match the following attributes on the secondary vxprint results:
The value of Rlink should match assoc: remote_rlink on the opposite partner.
The value of assoc: local_host should match the value of assoc: remote_host. on the opposite partner.
These values should match in both directions. If there is mismatch, review the following:
- An IP address mismatch can be corrected by following the procedure found in this article: http://support.veritas.com/docs/245929
- Other mismatches should be resolved by recreating the RVG that contains the invalid information. A procedure for recreating a secondary RVG can be found in this article: http://support.veritas.com/docs/289827
