Proposed Change: "Stop Mirroring" admin function to persist across Caché restart
Mirroring provides an admin capability to Stop Mirroring on this member, which causes a non-primary member to temporarily disconnect from the primary, stop dejournaling, etc. While most system administrators may never need or use this function, some employ it for certain kinds of maintenance or other special cases.
The intent is that the administrator uses the Start Mirroring function when they wish the member to reconnect. However, today mirroring also implicitly restarts (reconnects) if the Caché instance restarts. Since this can be unintentional, we intend to change the Stop Mirroring function to persist across instance restarts. This has been requested by some customers. This change is also quite consistent with current documentation, so it might come as a surprise to some of you that it doesn't already work that way.
Since it's hard to predict exactly how people make use this feature, I thought it could be helpful to let the community know and offer a chance for serious objections if there happens to be any.
