I'm in 'remote' now, and can't connect to the filer (I used to do so via Telnet, and the serial cable is now attached to the other member of the ha pair). Tomorrow morning I'll be 'on site' and see if I can do something with the BMC.
And I've already thought about takeover/giveback, but I have some DB LUNS hanging on the filer, and doubt if it is safe to do so (without stopping al the system of course). Is it safe to takeover when you cant 'reach' the partner??
