About this task

InfiniBox allows for an extra-curricular synchronization of a replica. The sync now task synchronizes a replicated dataset (volume, or a consistency group) on demand, regardless on the scheduled replica cycle.


This command requires an up and running replica definition, that is:

  • Past the Initialization state
  • Not in Suspended state

The command fails in case there is a sync job that is currently running.

GUI Instructions

  1. On the InfiniBox GUI, click the Replication icon on the let toolbar to open the Replication screen.
  2. Right-click a replica and select Synchronize Now from the pop-up menu.

    A sync job is initiated. 

InfiniShell instructions

Look up the following command on the InfiniShell Command Reference:

  • replica.sync_now
