We ran across this valuable technical information document (TID) while reviewing reader ratings. This one has received a number of top-level reviews (5-stars) from other readers.
This TID comes with a lot of cautions so we thought it best to link you directly to the source instead of trying to rephrase the technical details here.
Here's a short bite:
The following steps will force all replicas off of a server and clean up the replica rings. This process has many implications:
- If the only real replica of a partition exists on this server, all data for objects in this partition will be permanently lost.
- Once started, this process cannot be halted.
- If not followed correctly, this procedure can cause more damage to the NDS tree.
- If running NDS 8.x, make sure the DSREPAIR.NLM is version 7.28 or higher.
