How to use a secondary LUN in a remote replication?

0

In a remote replication, the secondary LUN and the primary LUN form a pair, and the secondary LUN backs up data on the primary LUN.
? By default, the secondary LUN cannot be accessed (read or written) by a host. If a request is made to access data on the secondary LUN, you can create a virtual snapshot for the secondary LUN, and then map the virtual snapshot to the host for access.
? When a primary LUN encounters a critical error and the services are interrupted, you must perform the master/slave switchover to switch the secondary LUN to the primary LUN, and then map the new primary LUN to the host for access.
NOTE:

What Is the Usage of the Secondary LUN of a Remote Replication
In a remote replication, the secondary LUN and the primary LUN form a pair, and the secondary LUN backs up data on the primary LUN. ? In normal cases, the secondary LUN of a remote replication cannot be accessed by hosts. Therefore, if a host needs to access a secondary LUN, you can create a snapshot for the secondary LUN and map the snapshot to the host for access. ? In the event that a primary LUN failed, which leads to service interruption, you must perform a primary/secondary switchover to switch the secondary LUN to the primary LUN and then map the new primary LUN to the host for data access.

What Is the Usage of the Secondary LUN of Remote Replication?
In a remote replication session, the secondary LUN and the primary LUN form a pair, and the secondary LUN backs up the data on the primary LUN. Normally, the secondary LUN (unreadable and unwritable) cannot be accessed by hosts. If a host needs to access the secondary LUN, you can create a snapshot for the secondary LUN and map the snapshot to the host.
