Re-create Protection Group RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi all,

    I've stopped the protection of a group as our customer has added 100GB of Data to the replica. This being replicated over a 2mb connection would take forever.  I've manually moved a copy of the data in to the replica location and want to recreate the protection group so that I can consistency check the data and get it back in Sync.

    Within the GUI, there is an inactive replica available. What's the best way for me to reinitiate protection of this group?

    Thanks
