RSA AM 7.1 SP3 Replication - 'Needs Action'

After a SAN outage and a restart of our RSA infrastructure, the replication status of the Replica Instances from Primary to Replica was showing the status of 'Needs Action'. It appeared that RSA believed that it had not replicated in almost 3 weeks.

In order to reinitialise replication use the following command from the command line on the Primary Instance

rsautil manage-replication -a resume

After a few minutes and a refresh of the 'Check Replication Status' screen, the 'Data Transfer Status' should show as 'Complete'.
