There are two servers pwd01.us.com and pwd02.us.com.
is the prod server and d02
is the Disaster recovery(DR) backup server.
Both are Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.0 on Virtual boxes.
My manager wants to do a DR test on d01.
I put the following steps and it was rejected
Unix SA to do failover of zone (pwwmap01) from the Prod node (pwd01.us.com) to the DR node (pwd02.us.com)..
hagrp –switch pwd01.us.com –to pwd02.us.com
tail /var/VRTSvcs/log/ engine_A.log to check for errors and/or successful completion, Check with:
hagrp -state d01
zlogin d01 check all SMF services have started correctly
To which the Unix SA's commented:
Give better, more meaningful instructions other than "DO a DR test on the Pre-prod server : d01.us.com and d02.us.com If you mean a failover, then show which zone is to be failed over. The DR Plan relates to Solaris zones, whereas the server you mention (d01) is a Linux machine. So completely different operating systems. In fact, VCS isn't even running on that machine.
I am not sure what unix commands are needed to do a DR test and what applications should be used for the same.
