FLI LUN Disk viewed as broken when used by a Windows 2003 cluster

[ Edited ]

Hi All

 

I am experiencing some issues concerning a FLI Disk coming from a 7-Mode LUN.

 

The LUN is mounted on a Windows 2003 Cluster and is saw as "container-type:broken" when shown on destination NetApp cluster "FLICDOT1":

Errors:
SDA12.12 (60a980004176354d6f5d4875584c6c66): This device is a Data ONTAP(R) LUN.
This disk is in a failed state with the outage reason "failed". The Disk needs to be removed and replaced.

The disk is shown as broken only if used by Microsoft 2003 Cluster. But when the status is broken, even if the LUN is no more used, the disk status remains broken.

 

Note that the same LUN mapped to another NetApp cluster "FLICDOT2" is viewed as broken on "FLICDOT1" and is correctly viewed on "FLICDOT2" :

Errors:
SDA12.1 (60a980004176354d6f5d4875584c6c66): This device is a Data ONTAP(R) LUN.

The following commands were tested without any success :

FLICDOT1::*> storage disk unfail -disk SDA12.12

Warning: Failed disk "SDA12.12" may have aggregate labels and file system data present. In that case, this command will attempt to bring this disk back into the aggregate with which this disk had formerly been associated and
         preserve file system data. Are you sure you want to continue with disk unfail? {y|n}: y

Error: command failed: Failed to unfail the disk. Reason: Disk SDA12.12 is not currently failed.
FLICDOT1::*> storage disk remove -disk SDA12.12

Error: command failed: Failed to remove the disk. Reason: Disk not found.

Any idea to force ONTAP "FLICDOT1" to check again the disk status ... ?
