We deployed a 2-node ontap select cluster via ontap deploy in a vcenter for testing. Now our vmware colleagues removed a host from the vcenter. Therefore they shutdown all VMs of this host and migrated them to a different host in the vcenter. On the removed host also run one node of our ontap select cluster. After this action the node don't come up properly. Node 2 has currently taken over node 1 and don't recognize when node 1 comes up. Ontap deploy still shows the removed host as okay.
Vcenter / Host version: 6.7
ontap select: 9.6 (evalution license)
ontap deploy: 2.12.1
Is an ontap select hard bond to the host or is it possible to migrate to a different host? Despite the current situation, is it possible to migrate an ontap select node to a different host, e. g. tech refresh of esx-hosts?
After deployment, the ONTAP Select nodes can be migrated between hosts. This could result in nonoptimal and unsupported configurations for which two or more ONTAP Select nodes from the same cluster share the same underlying host. NetApp recommends the manual creation of VM anti-affinity rules so that VMware automatically maintains physical separation between the nodes of the same cluster, not just the nodes from the same HA pair.
