When enabling storage failover (Data ONTAP 8.1 cluster mode, 2 nodes),I got an error says that "failed to enabe storage failover serivce,reason: storage failover monitor not initialized",
did I do any configuration wrong? I followed the help guide step by step, the command I had input was: storage failover modify -node node_name -enabled true
Thanks a lot for any feedback

"Storage failover monitor not initialized"
You need to restart all the nodes in the cluster after the initial cluster setup. Storage failover needs a reboot to initialize. I had this problem myself.

The post from promise is correct and fixed it for me.
But on a two node cluster, dont forget to enable: "cluster ha modify -configured true" otherwise Epsilon will not be your frind

Another way to troubleshoot this is:
storage failover hwassist show
It shows the Monitor status and, if the Monitor is inactive, provides Inactive Reasons and Corrective Actions.
