The HPE Distributed Action Handler preserves the online/offline status of the virtual databases (VDBs) between restart. An up-to-date record of the online/offline status of each VDB is stored in a status file (status.dat).

You can define the location of the status file in the StatusFileDirectory configuration parameter. The default is ./status.

The status file has the same format as a standard configuration file. You can edit the Offline parameter in the status file before HPE Distributed Action Handler startup to set the status of a VDB to offline.
