recently, we have installed Ontap Onselect solution. It was 2 node Onselect HA cluster in one location. We were discussing what should we do, if the Ontap Deploy VM were removed. To enable all functions and features (storage failover capability etc.), are we supposed to deploy a secondary Deploy VM and restore the two node cluster quorum?
So for 2-node ONTAP Select deployments, the placement of the Deploy VM is quite important as it's acting as a mediator and mediator configuration data on it. So ensuring it's backed up and can be recovered is important.
thank you so much for your input! In the documentation given I found out this sentence -
"The ONTAP Select two-node cluster should be carefully monitored for EMS messages indicating that storage failover is disabled. These messages indicate a loss of connectivity tothe mediator service and should be rectified immediatel"
The question is how to rectify the system if Ontap Select Deploy VM is for some reason removed (It is 2 node Ontap Select HA cluster). As previously said, I would say, in order to reestablish the storage failover capability, there is necessary to deploy a secondary Ontap Deploy VM and restore the two node cluster quorum
Please correct me if I am wrong, otherwise I will mark this post as resolved.
