I have a FAS2050 with 2 heads (active/active) filer 2 has died on me and doesnt boot up any more.
Cant remember the message, but its telling me to point to a valid root folder...
When I went into the management console to look into making these changes, it says I may lose the settings if filer 1 has taken over this head.
Filer 1 has taken over all of filer 2 operations
my questions are:
if I point it to a new 'root' folder, will I lose the current config on filer 2?
If I will lose information, do I move everything to filer1 before attempting to recreate the root?
as we dont have a backup strategy, how should I be backing up the netapp configs for future use?
its an environment I've taken on with my job, so I'm trying to learn as I go..
