Use Ops Center Protector to monitor high availability operations, HA pairs, and data flows.
Ops Center Protector must be registered in Ops Center Administrator, and the primary and secondary storage systems must be onboarded in Ops Center Protector.
  1. Log in to Ops Center Protector and click Monitoring in the global navigation menu.
  2. In the Monitor inventory page, you can see all data flows created by Ops Center Administrator.
  3. Click a data flow to open the Monitor details page.
  4. Click the target block device to expose any related replications in the Linked Records panel.
  5. Click the Replications icon to view the details of related replications and perform operations on them.
  6. The following operations are available in this page:
    • Mount: Enabled only if one or more Replications are selected. Opens the Hitachi Block Snapshot or Replication Mount Wizard to guide you through mounting the Replication.
      Note: The mount operation can take several minutes to complete.
    • Unmount: Enabled only if one mounted replication is selected. Unmounts the selected replication.
      Note: The unmount operation can take several minutes to complete.
    • Pause: Enabled only if one or more replications are selected. Pauses the replication.
    • Resume: Enabled only if one or more replications are selected. Resumes a paused replication.
    • Swap: Enabled only if one or more replications are selected. Opens the Hitachi Block Replication Swap Wizard to guide you through swapping the replication direction.
    • Unsuspend: If a Swap operation cannot be completed due to a P-VOL or data link fault between the primary and secondary device, the replication will enter the SSWS state (suspended for swapping) indicating that the swap is not yet complete. Unsuspend enables the replication process to be re-established once the cause has been rectified.
    • Transfer RBAC Permissions: Allows RBAC ownership to be transferred from the current node to another node. Opens the Access Control Transfer Permissions Dialog.
    • Dissociate: Enabled only if one or more replications are selected. Dissociates a replication that was previously adopted by Ops Center Protector. Removes the selected replications from Ops Center Protector, including state information such as direction and mount location. The replication remains active on the hardware devices. DISSOCIATE must be entered before the command is executed.
      Note: Dissociating a replication removes all knowledge of the replication from Ops Center Protector, including state information such as direction and mount location.
