Revert a failover operation

Reverting a failover operation on a secondary cluster enables you to replicate data from the primary cluster to the secondary cluster again. Failover reversion is useful if the primary cluster becomes available before data is modified on the secondary cluster or if you failed over to a secondary cluster for testing purposes.

Before you begin

Fail over by executing a replication policy.

About this task

Reverting a failover operation does not migrate modified data back to the primary cluster. To migrate data that clients have modified on the secondary cluster, you must fail back to the primary cluster.

Complete the following procedure for each replication policy that you want to fail over:


  1. Click Data Protection > SyncIQ > Local Targets.
  2. In the SyncIQ Local Targets table, in the row for a replication policy, from the Actions column, select Disallow Writes.
