Delete a Replication Partner

  • Change all volume collections so that replication is not scheduled with a partner

    For more information, see Edit a Volume Collection.

  • Ensure that there are no volume collections that have the replication partner selected

    You can determine this by searching by the partner name on the volume collections page.

  • Be sure to remove both the upstream and downstream replication partners unless you are using HPE CV replication.

    For HPE CV replication, you must remove the partnership from upstream then the downstream partner is automatically removed.

NOTE: This procedure does not apply to synchronous replication. For synchronous replication, you cannot delete pool partners. Pool partners are deleted automatically based on the number of pools in the group.

When you delete a replication partner relationship, only the replication partner relationship is deleted, not the array.

For HPE CV replication:
  • You must enter your HPE CV credentials to delete the upstream partner in HPE CV
  • Only those partners that are owned by the HPE CV user can be deleted
  1. Select ManageData ProtectionReplication Partners.
  2. Click the name of the the replication partner that you want to delete.
  3. Click X to delete the replication partner.
    If you removed all volume collections from the source group, you can view the confirmation that the replication partner was deleted. If there are still active volume collections associated with the partner, delete those and repeat the process. You might want to promote a volume collection associated with the downstream partner before you delete it.

Deleting the HPE CV replication partner does not delete the downstream volumes in your replication store. These volumes are still usable in the cloud. You can delete these volumes from the HPE CV portal if you want to free up space in the replication store.
