264 IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center for Replication on Windows 2003
Note that TPC for Replication always defines the primary volumes as cascaded volumes for a
potential Metro/Global Mirror configuration - even when it is only used in a two site Metro
Mirror configuration as in this example. Example 5-54 on page 263 shows two VOLUME
REPORT entries. For our two site Metro Mirror volume pairs the second volume report
applies. This CQUERY command output provides a good overview with all relevant information
you need to know between a Metro Mirror volume pair.
As for the source or primary Metro Mirror volume you may also query the target or secondary
Metro Mirror volume. Example 5-55 shows a TSO based query example to query a secondary
Metro Mirror volume.

5.4.12 Query Metro Mirror session via the GUI
Start from the sessions overview panel to query a certain session. Click the session name
hyper link of session MM1 as Figure 5-256 on page 265 shows.
Chapter 5. Using TotalStorage Productivity Center for Replication on Windows 2003 265
Figure 5-256 Start to query session details
After you clicked on the session name hyper link a corresponding new panel opens up as
Figure 5-257 displays.
Figure 5-257 Session details
This panel in Figure 5-257 is important to understand. It reports the overall session state as
Prepared and the session is recoverable which translates to a healthy session status. From
here on you may recover at the Site 2 at any time and get a complete set of consistent

volumes at the H2 site. This in turn translates that all H2 volumes are in FULL DUPLEX state
and, therefore, provide a consistent set of volumes to recover with.
Figure 5-258 Query role pair details
Figure 5-258 shows that you may dig further down into the selected session MM1 and further
query all copy sets within this session. Click H1-H2 hyper link which then opens up another
panel which Figure 5-259 displays.

Figure 5-259 on page 266 is again a particular naming case for CKD volumes. It displays all
copy sets within the session MM1. As H1 and H2 user name you see here again the CKD
volume label as the user name.
Each user name under the heading H1 and H2 is another hyper link which drills further down
to the individual volume within the storage server.
Figure 5-260 Details of specific H1 volume
When you click RS9000 under the H1 heading a Volume Details section, it opens up in the
lower part of the panel as shown in Figure 5-260. Again the user name is the volume label
and the Full Name contains the volume name as it is known by the storage server. Note that
the last qualifier in the Full Name is the device number as it is managed by the storage
server. 9000 translates into device 00 in LSS 90 following the device numbering scheme for
the DS6000 and the DS8000.
The determine what the actual device at the H2 site is, click RS9000 under H2, which brings
us to Figure 5-261 on page 268.
Note that the reason for the same User Name of the device in H1 and H2 is related to the fact
that PPRC replicates the complete source volume. This includes also the very first track and
record of the source volume where the label is stored. For that reason we see as a User
Name or label the same name for the H2 volume as the name of the H1 volume.
