Undoing Failback

If the undo failback process encounters an error while being performed, it will not be halted automatically — the plan will proceed until the process completes. To terminate the undo failback process manually, use the Halt option to stop the currently running plan as described in section Halting Failover. To resume the undo failback process again, use the Undo option.
