shutdown metrocluster both sites

Hello

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.

 

Thanks

Ian

Re: shutdown metrocluster both sites

Hi there!

 

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:

  1. Disable AUSO - https://docs.netapp.com/ontap-9/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.netapp.doc.dot-cm-cmpr-930%2Fmetrocluster__modify.html
  2. Halt individual nodes
  3. Move equipment
  4. Power on one side
  5. Power on other side
  6. Re-enable AUSO
  7. Heal aggregates
  8. Run Metrocluster check

Hope this helps!
