suppress takeover for certain aggregate

following situation

 

1) MC with 8.2.3 7-Mode
2) each site
aggr0 mirrored
aggr1 not mirrored

 

It's possible to suppress a takeover only for aggr1 during failover?

Re: suppress takeover for certain aggregate

No. Filer will configure all aggregates it sees. 

Re: suppress takeover for certain aggregate

Hi,

 

What is the reason for your question ? Maintenance ?

Do you mean a normal Failover or a Site-Failover ? In a normal takeover the aggregate is still available, but in a Site-Failover the aggregate can't be used.

-> Site-Failover of an asymmetrical mirroring

 

But if this occurs (e.g. controller A fails) and controller B have no access to a certain aggregat of controller A at this time, a kernel panic is possible. right ?

Re: suppress takeover for certain aggregate

It should not panic. Some aggregates will be missing after takeover, that's all. Of course if root aggregate itself is missing, no takeover is possible.

That's correct.

It should not panic, especially if the release version is equal or above 7.1.x.

 

Did you have the problem after a takeover ?
