On the target cluster, you can manually break an association between a replication policy and target directory. Breaking the association between a source and target cluster causes the mark on the target cluster to be deleted. You might want to manually break a target association if an association is obsolete. If you break the association of a policy, the policy is disabled on the source cluster and you cannot run the policy. If you want to run the disabled policy again, you must reset the replication policy.
Breaking a policy association causes either a full replication or differential replication to occur the next time you run the replication policy. During a full or differential replication, SyncIQ creates a new association between the source and target clusters. Depending on the amount of data being replicated, a full or differential replication can take a very long time to complete.
