EMC Recover Point – how to recreate repository volume

We have to recreate repository volume of our RP but I could not find any guidance from EMC site. So I’m documenting my steps here for further usage:

Procedure overview:
On EMC storage:

  1. Create about 6-8 GB LUN.
  2. Present that LUN to storage group of RP nodes.

On RP appliances:
On last cluster member:

  1. Detach RPA from cluster
  2. Format repository volume
  3. Reboot
  4. Attach RPA to cluster

On each subsequent appliance:

  1. Detach RPA from cluster
  2. Select repository volume
  3. Reboot
  4. Attach RPA to cluster

This is a transcript of console sessions:

  1. Hi there ,
    I am running into the same issue and was wondering , you used the word “format’ but yet on line 62 you picked “select” …Is there a reason behind it ?
    I’ve been told to pick “format” on RPA1 and “select” on RPA2 , is that right?
    Thank you

    1. Documentation was created few days after and after tons of trials. Maybe I’ve picked wrong transcript. I’ll check next week and will let you know. Right now I think that you have to format it at least once.
