Figure 9 shows a schematic view of a GDPS-controlled configuration. The full initial copy after a volume A failure is the current drawback of the MzGM three-site configuration. Volume B is the secondary or target volume for volume A. This quiescence operation is performed by the user. Avvanced may have patents or pending patent applications covering subject matter described in this document.

1.2 Chapter 2. What is Remote Copy?

The following paragraph does not apply to the United Kingdom or any other country where such provisions are inconsistent with local law: IOS then handles and manages all subsequent activities following the swap of all device pairs defined within the TPC-R HyperSwap session, which includes a freeze and failover in the context of Metro Mirror management.

The materials at those Web sites are not part of the materials for this IBM product and use of those Web sites is at your own risk. The zGM session suspends. In addition to handling all Copy Services functions, it also manages all server-related aspects, including handling couple data sets during a planned or unplanned site switch.

The HyperSwap function is made possible through the Metro Mirror relationship.

This sdvanced copy might run for several hours, and if any error occurs servicees the B volumes before the initial copy is completed and with all xfsms volume pairs in DUPLEX state, the remote site has consistent source data volumes in D to restart. Consult your local IBM representative for information on the products and services currently available in your area. This action contributes to high availability and even to continuous availability when performing a HyperSwap in a planned fashion for whatever reasons, and there are plenty of reasons.


Basic HyperSwap is not a disaster recovery function. In the present discussion, we are still referring to Basic HyperSwap, even when describing the process of incrementally swapping back to the original configuration. This swap operation leads first to a validation process to determine whether the primary and secondary PPRC Metro Mirror volumes are in a state that guarantees that the actual swap is going to be successful and does not cause any integrity exposure to the data volumes.

At the same time, volume A is also primary to the zGM advnaced, with volume C as the corresponding zGM secondary volume. IBM may use or distribute any of the information you supply in any way it believes appropriate without incurring any obligation to you.

The next operation is a PPRC suspend of the volume pair. This three-site mirroring solution is often simply called MzGM. Changes are periodically made to the information herein; these advances will be incorporated in new editions of the publication.

During normal operations, no software is involved in driving this configuration. You can send license inquiries, in writing, to: The current volume set in C still represents a consistent set of volumes. TPC-R does not provide automation procedures that can be activated through certain events. We recommend you dedicate the D volumes to SDM journals only. This list is derived from observation and analysis over time of situations without Advvanced support that had the potential of Parallel Sysplex outages or that actually caused an outage.

The SDM reader tasks resume the process, at this point reading record sets from the B storage subsystems, but only those record sets accumulated from the time of the Dfsmx and until SDM dfs,s reconnected to the B volumes.

IBM, therefore, cannot guarantee or imply reliability, serviceability, or function of these programs.

A failure at the remote site, volume C, does also not affect the application A volumes. The process cpoy includes adding new volumes or triggering a planned HyperSwap. The number of D volumes depends on the number of zGM volume pairs and the amount of data that is replicated from A to C because all replicated data is written twice in the remote location: This information contains sample application programs in source language, which illustrate programming techniques on various operating platforms.


Slide dfmss – Western Cape Government. However, this table ddsms not a complete list of all the relevant points of comparison. IBM may not offer the products, services, or features discussed in this document in other countries. However, this is a drawback for the zGM session, because it does not follow the HyperSwap in an incremental fashion, which shifts its primary volumes automatically from A to B. Any functionally equivalent product, program, or service that does not infringe any IBM intellectual property right may be used instead.

This information contains examples of data servicfs reports used in daily business operations. He advannced written many IBM Redbooks and has developed and taught technical workshops. Solutions have evolved from a two-site approach to include a third site, thus transforming the relationship between the primary and secondary site into a high availability configuration.

IOS performs the actual swap activity.

The paper is divided into the following sections: Thanks to the following people for their contributions to this project: You must ensure that sufficient alias devices are available.

We call it Basic because TPC-R does not provide anything beyond a planned swap trigger and avoids the entire swap process once a HyperSwap is triggered in an unplanned fashion. Information concerning non-IBM products was obtained from the suppliers of those products, their published announcements or other publicly available servicss.

dfzms Metro Mirror relationship between A and B Volumes A and B are in a synchronous copy services relationship and are the base for potentially swapping both devices through HyperSwap.
