We have 2 contrillers namely Ctrl1 and Ctrl2 both are FAS3240 connected to DS4243 and DS224 in HA Pair.
1) I would like to know which controller is the primary node. ?
2) If ctrl2 is the primary node then how can i let ctrl1 act as a primary node.
when I do a cf giback
ctrl2 is is giving back and ctrl1 show me takeover mode.
I want ctrl1 to be primary node and in case the problem occurs ctrl2 should take over.

They are active/active, there is no offical "standby" node. Both nodes serve out data at the same time.
During a takeover, one node will take ownership of its partners aggr/volumes/etc and continue to serve out data.
If you have one showing that it's takenover, you might have an issue with the node that's been taken over.
