The following is performed on the primary 3PAR, i.e. the source

Log into the primary 3PAR and show the status of remote copy group myserver03_test

 my3par01 cli% showrcopy groups myserver03_test

The remote copy group is currently in sync. To failover we need to stop the remote copy group

 my3par01 cli% stoprcopygroup myserver03_test
 Stopping group myserver03_test. If volumes in the group are still synchronizing,
 then their snapshots on the secondary side may get promoted.
 Do you wish to continue?
 select q=quit y=yes n=no: y
 
 my3par01 cli% showrcopy groups myserver03_test

Now perform the following on the secondary 3PAR, i.e. the target

Log into the secondary 3PAR and run the showrcopy command to find the target remote copy name. This will be same as on the primary but with a suffix, in our example myserver03_test.r50751.

Now you need to perform the failover

 my3par02 cli% setrcopygroup failover -nostart myserver03_test.r50751
 This command will cause all indicated secondary groups to become primary thereby allowing changes to be made to all VVs in the group.
 Are you sure that you wish to perform this action?
 select q=quit y=yes n=no: y
 setrcopygroup for failover -nostart myserver03_test.r50751
 failover started with tasks: 4912
 my3par02 cli% showtask 4912
 No tasks.

The showtasks commands shows the failover has completed. The remote LUNs will now be in a read/write state so can be presenetd to the DR server

 my3par02 cli% createvlun myserver03_rc_test_11_Y 11 myserver03_DR
 my3par02 cli%
 my3par02 cli% showvlun -host myserver03_DR

The LUN can be unpresented again using the following command

 my3par02 cli%
 my3par02 cli% removevlun myserver03_rc_test_11_Y 11 myserver03_DR
 Issuing removevlun myserver03_rc_test_11_Y 11 myserver03_DR
 select q=quit y=yes n=no: y

Lun status can be displayed as follows:

 my3par02 cli% showvv -rcopy -rcopygroup  myserver03_test.r50751
