shutdown metrocluster both sites
2019-04-04 04:43 AM
I have a customer who wants a complete data center relocation, involing both sites ( no failover) which run Netapp MetroCluster FC for ONTAP 9.3. Is there a special procedure for powering down both sites, meaning no switch over of services.
I can find quite a few documents that involes one site power down but not both.

Sorry for the delay in responding. If you still require further guidance, please feel free to post a follow up question.
Short summary is that it depends on exact configuration - FC or IP MetroCluster, how many nodes at each side, if there is a tiebreaker in place.
Assuming no tiebreaker, FC metrocluster:
- Disable AUSO - https://docs.netapp.com/ontap-9/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.netapp.doc.dot-cm-cmpr-930%2Fmetrocluster__modify.html
- Halt individual nodes
- Move equipment
- Power on one side
- Power on other side
- Re-enable AUSO
- Heal aggregates
- Run Metrocluster check
Hope this helps!
