Controlling Shadow Merge Host?

» close window

The Question is:

can I somehow control and change the node control of shadow copy and merge
 operations in a cluster environment? I've tried seting shadow_max_copy
 parameter to 0 on a node, where controling of shadow copy operation is
 unwanted, but next sh.copy operation w
as again controled by this node.
Thank you.

The Answer is :

  Prior to V8.2, there is no particularly good nor reliable means
  to control where shadow merges and copies occur.
  With OpenVMS V8.2 and later, the OpenVMS Wizard expects there
  will be a means to select and to display a system-specific
  priority list of shadow sets.
  Should this capability be released and supported with V8.2 or
  later, the OpenVMS Wizard would expect to see the documentation
  in the Guide to Volume Shadowing manual.
