Promoting a Volume from the Command Line

  • To promote a read-only mirror to a read-write volume from the command line, run the volume modify command from the cluster where the mirror resides and specify the name of the mirror volume that is being promoted. In this example, the mirror volume is named volA:
    Cluster2> maprcli volume modify -name volA -type rw
    Warning: Once a mirror volume is promoted to a read-write (rw) volume, the mirroring schedule associated with that volume is disabled.
  • To promote several mirror volumes at once, provide a comma-separated list of volume names. For example:
    Cluster2> maprcli volume modify -name volA,volB,volC -type rw
