Reattaching an SR

Nov 29, 2012

A detached storage device has no association with any pool or server, but the data stored on it is preserved. When you reattach a storage repository to a managed server, you need to provide the storage configuration information in the same way as when you add a new storage repository.

To reattach a detached SR

  1. Select the detached SR in the Resources pane and then do one of the following:
    • Right-click and click Reattach Storage Repository on the Resources pane shortcut menu.
    • On the Storage menu, click Reattach Storage Repository.
  2. Enter the required configuration information in the same way as when you add a new storage repository. See:
  3. Click Finish to complete the SR configuration and close the wizard.
