Hi,

We have implemented AIR in our environment. I dono not have access to the source master server(PR) but for target master server(DR) i have. I would like to check pending replication images which is about to replicate from source to target master server... replication images  from source are targeted to my data domain(DR). Also let us know is it possible to stop the replication from target master server.

You can use the below commands to find incomplete,inactive and in-progress replications status.
On 7.6.0.4 we execute the below commands on source server.
nbstlutil stlilist -image_incomplete
nbstlutil stlilist -image_inactive -U
nbstlutil report;date
I am not sure about the commands to stop them.

The NBSTLUTIL command (possibly combined with some scripting) is what you're looking for.

I'm not sure when it was added but in 7.7.3 (what I'm running) it now supports the -M flag to specify which Master to act upon/query.

nbstlutil report

This will give you a report (On the Target) of what is still replicating, I tested this seconds before replying to your post. 

 

nbstlutil pendimplist 

will show you a very messy list of all images that are waiting to import. You can use the -U, even though the cmd returns "option '-U'  is not valid for operation 'pendimplist' and is ignored" it gives you more information for each image:

Image:
Master Server :
Backup ID :
Client :
Backup Time :
Policy :
Client Type :
Schedule Type :
Storage Lifecycle Policy :
Storage Lifecycle State :
Storage Lifecycle Is Inactive :
Time In Process :
Data Classification ID :
Version Number :
OriginMasterServer :
OriginMasterServerID :
Import From Replica Time :
Required Expiration Date :
Created Date Time :

Why would you want to stop replications? 

Presuming you want to pause, rather than stop replication:

nbstlutil inactive -destination <name>

Then to continue replication:

nbstlutil active -destination <name>
