Adding a Storage Group to an Archive
Adding a storage group to an archive means that the storage group will then be in service by the Storage Manager (SM) started with that archive, in addition to any other storage groups associated with that archive. The storage group will be created if the storage group does not already exist in the database.
A storage group is added to an archive using the
add storage-group command which associates the storage group with a specific archive. The
add storage-group command takes the following arguments:
The name of the database
The name of the storage group
The ID of the archive.
Before attempting to add a storage group to an archive, run the
show archives command. For example:
nuocmd show archives --db-name tpsgtest  server0 : /var/opt/production-archives/tpsgtest @ tpsgtest [journal_path = ] [snapshot_archive_path = ] RUNNING [SM] p18/localhost:48008 [start_id = 4] [server_id = server0] [pid = 25183] [node_id = 1] [last_ack = 2.26] MONITORED:RUNNING  server0 : /var/opt/production-archives/tpsgtestsm2 @ tpsgtest [journal_path = ] [snapshot_archive_path = ] PROVISIONED
After investigating the archives available, use the
add storage-group command to add a storage group to an archive.
nuocmd add storage-group --db-name tpsgtest --sg-name SG0 --archive-id 1 nuocmd add storage-group --db-name tpsgtest --sg-name SG1 --archive-id 2
A storage manager does not have to be running using the archive to add a storage group to it.
By default, when no storage groups have been added, only the
UNPARTITIONED storage group is available.
You can use the
add storage-group command to add a storage group to an archive with a running SM or one that does not have a running SM.
