Stopping mirrored protection

When you stop mirrored protection, one disk unit from each mirrored pair is unconfigured. Before you can stop mirrored protection for a disk pool, at least one disk unit in each mirrored pair in that disk pool must be present and active.

To control which mirrored disk unit of each pair is unconfigured, you suspend the disk units that you want to become unconfigured. For disk units that are not suspended, the selection is automatic.

If you want to stop mirroring on an independent disk pool that is unavailable, you can do so when your system is fully restarted. For all other disk pools, you need to restart your system to the dedicated service tools (DST) mode before stopping mirrored protection.

Mirrored protection is dedicated to a single system, and is distinct from cross-site mirroring.

To stop mirrored protection using your IBM® Navigator for i, follow these steps:

  1. Select Configuration and Service from your IBM Navigator for i.
  2. Select Disk Pools.
  3. Right-click the disk pool that you want to stop.
  4. Select Stop Mirroring.
