Managing Storage Groups
A storage group is a logical storage unit that can be associated with one or more archives in your database. A storage group is said to be online if there are one or more running SMs that serve the storage group. A storage group is said to be offline if no running SMs serve that storage group.
|A storage group that has been online and then went offline cannot be brought back online with the database contains running TEs.|
get storage-groups command, you can display information about storage groups in your domain.
Storage groups are associated with archives using the
add storage-group command.
If the storage group specified in the command does not exist in the database, it will be created.
See Adding a Storage Group to an Archive for more details.
Storage group associations are removed from archives using the
remove storage-group command.
Removing a storage group results in the archive no longer storing data for that storage group.
You cannot remove all archives associated with a storage group if the storage group has table partitions with data in them.
See Removing a Storage Group from an Archive for more details.
A storage group goes permanently offline for two reasons:
The storage group is removed from all archives with no intent of adding it back to any archive.
All archives serving the storage group are damaged or lost.
Permanently offline storage groups must be deleted from the database using the
delete storage-group command.
