Reset a replication policy

If a replication job encounters an error that you cannot resolve, you can reset the corresponding replication policy. Resetting a policy causes OneFS to perform a full or differential replication the next time the policy is run. Resetting a replication policy deletes the latest snapshot generated for the policy on the source cluster.

About this task

Caution Image
Depending on the amount of data being replicated, a full or differential replication can take a very long time to complete. Reset a replication policy only if you cannot fix the issue that caused the replication error. If you fix the issue that caused the error, resolve the policy instead of resetting the policy.

Procedure

  1. Click Data Protection > SyncIQ > Policies.
  2. In the SyncIQ Policies table, in the row for a policy, select Reset Sync State.
