Recover HDR and RS clusters after failure

When you restore the HDR or RS cluster back to the original configuration, you might need to restore critical media, as well as restart and configure servers in the cluster.

The result of a disk failure depends on whether the disk failure occurs on the primary or the secondary database server, whether the chunks on the disk contain critical media (the root dbspace, a logical-log file, or the physical log), and whether the chunks are mirrored.

If chunks are mirrored, you can perform recovery just as you would for a standard database server that used mirroring.

If chunks are not mirrored, the procedure for restoring a primary database server depends on whether the disk that failed contains critical media:

If chunks are not mirrored, a secondary database server fails if the disk contains critical media but remains online if the disk does not contain critical media. In both cases, you must perform a full restore using the dbspace backups on the primary database server. In the second case, you cannot restore selected dbspaces from the secondary dbspace backup because they might now deviate from the corresponding dbspaces on the primary database server. You must perform a full restore.
