Breaking database replication - BlueCat Address Manager - 8.3.2

Address Manager Administration Guide

BlueCat Address Manager

Breaking replication removes database replication from servers and returns them to stand-alone operation. Each server then uses its replicated copy of the database.

  • You must be an Address Manager administrator to break database replication.
  • When you break or remove database replication, Address Manager restarts the Primary and Standby servers. All servers will be unavailable for a few minutes while they restart.
Use the Break command when you want to remove database replication from your servers and return them to stand-alone operation. You can break database replication from the Primary server or from a Standby server.
Note: To break replication, the Primary database must be online. If the Primary server is offline, the Primary database is not available, so you cannot log in to the Address Manager web interface on the Standby servers.

If the Primary server is not online, use the reset replication Administration Console command on the Standby server or servers. For more information, refer to Resetting database replication.

  1. Select the Administration tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Administration page.

  4. Click the Database Replication menu and select Break. The Database Replication Remove Confirmation page opens.
