Splitting a Consistency Group

Splitting a Consistency Group

By performing this operation, you can split all remote replication pairs in a consistency group simultaneously so that a full data copy is generated for each secondary LUN in each pair, facilitating report generation, test, data mining, decision making, and data recovery.


  • Based on Running Status of a consistency group, determine whether the consistency group can be split, as shown in Table 4-23.
    Table 4-23 Status requirements for splitting a consistency group

    Running Status of a Consistency Group

    Splitting Remote Replication Pairs in a Consistency Group (Supported or Not)





    Interrupted (link down)

    Yes (Can be performed only on the primary device of a consistency group.)

    Interrupted (link up)


    To be recovered






  • When a synchronous consistency group is splitting, if the storage system has a controller reset, some remote replication pairs in the consistency group may fail to be split. As a result, the consistency groups cannot guarantee data consistency between the primary and secondary LUNs.


  1. Log in to DeviceManager.
  2. Go to the remote replication consistency group page.

    The operation path varies with user types:

    • System user: Click vStore, select the desired vStore, and click Details to go to the vStore view. Choose Data Protection > Remote Replication > Remote Replication Consistency Group.
    • vStore user: In the vStore view, choose Data Protection > Remote Replication > Remote Replication Consistency Group.

  3. Right-click the desired consistency group and choose Split.

    The security alert dialog box is displayed.

  4. Confirm the operation of splitting remote replication pairs in the consistency group.

    1. Carefully read the contents of the dialog box. Select I have read and understand the consequences associated with performing this operation. Click OK to confirm the information.
    2. Click OK.

      The Success dialog box is displayed, indicating that the operation succeeded.

    3. Click OK.
