  • Deleting HA policy does not affect the primary storage. Data on primary storage remains safe.

  3. Click Delete > Delete Policy. A message window appears.

Promote secondary storage during HA policy deletion

If your primary storage is corrupted, not reachable or cannot be recovered then inSync allows you to promote your secondary storage to primary storage. During HA policy deletion, you can remap all users from primary storage to secondary storage and then promote the secondary storage to primary storage.

Before you delete the HA policy, ensure:

  • Sharing is disabled for all users that are allocated to the primary storage. HA policy deletion will fail if sharing is enabled for any user on that storage.
  • No user allocated to primary storage is on legal hold. If any user is on legal hold, then during the remap process, inSync will not remap that user from the primary storage to the secondary storage. 

To delete HA policy and promote secondary storage to primary storage

  1. On the inSync Management Console menu bar, click ManageHigh Availability.
  2. Select the high availability policy that you want to delete.
  3. Click Delete > Delete Policy and Promote Secondary. A message window appears.
  4. If you want to remap all users from the primary storage to the secondary storage, select the Remap all users from <primary storage name> to <secondary storage name>
  5. Click Ok.
