Resetting the Disaster Recovery Configuration

You reset the disaster recovery configuration on both the active and the standby sites to stop the disaster recovery process and clean up the disaster recovery configuration from both sites. To reset the disaster recovery configuration, you execute the jmp-dr reset command.

The jmp-dr reset command does the following:

  • Stops the disaster recovery watchdog at the sites

  • Stops the replication of MySQL data, PgSQL data, configuration files, and round-robin database (RRD) files between sites

  • Starts services such as JBoss, OpenNMS, Apache, and so on at the standby site

  • Modifies the role of the cluster at the site (from active or standby to standalone)

To reset the disaster recovery configuration:

  1. Log in to the CLI of the Junos Space node at the active site on which the VIP or the eth0:0 interface is configured.

    The Junos Space Settings Menu is displayed.

  2. Enter 7 while using a virtual appliance at the Junos Space Settings Menu prompt to run shell commands.

    The following is a sample output from a virtual appliance:

    You are prompted to enter the administrator password.

  3. Enter the administrator password.
  4. Type jmp-dr reset at the shell prompt and press Enter.

    The following is a sample output:

  5. To reset the disaster recovery configuration at the standby site, repeat steps 1 through 4 at the standby site.

The disaster recovery configuration is reset.


We recommend that you execute the jmp-dr health command on both sites after resetting the disaster recovery configuration to check the status of the role, disaster recovery process, services, replication process, and disaster recovery watchdog.
