Hi all, question about an error we're seeing. We have a FAS3020c, it had been offline for a while and I am getting it set back up and configured under our new network.
It has the error "Cluster failover partner unknown. Cluster failover not possible." I don't really know what this is, but I'm guessing it's the second half of an active/active config. It may have been at one point connected to the other filer, but now it's a standalone and will be reconfigured as such. Through the web console I saw that Clustering was disabled (Cluster disabled. VIA Interconnect is down (link 0 down, link 1 down)). I also turned off SnapMirror, but the error persists. Any thoughts or suggestions how to resolve this?
It won't lose the ability to cluster later... to cluster later, "license add xxxxxx" to re-add the license, reboot... and move NVRAM to slot 3. You may still need to "unsetenv partner-sysid" from the CFE> prompt (ctrl-c to break the boot) since that setting can still make it think it is a cluster... if you cluster again it will repopulate automatically from the partner.
