can ADP container ownership be different with root parition

I have a 2-node switchless cluster. I would like to shut it down. I disable the cluster.  I have disk ownership as shown. once I halt both node and boot them. I found the following result. The controller that does not own the disk container whre its root partition reside has no root volume to boot up. BTW I wonder why disk is reserved  and "waiting for giveback" while cluster HA is disabled.

Info: This cluster has partitioned disks. To get a complete list of spare disk
capacity use "storage aggregate show-spare-disks".

Re: can ADP container ownership be different with root parition

Can you clarify a few things?  

 

 "I would like to shut it down."  - You would like to shut it down, or you did shut it down?   

- If you did shut it down, what steps did you take? 

 

"I disable the cluster." - What do you mean?  You disabled Cluster HA? 

 

what ONTAP version? 

Re: can ADP container ownership be different with root parition

I want to conduct power maintenance. I have to shudtdown the 2-node cluster. so I disable the cluster HA by command "cluster ha modify –configured false". Then I halt both controller into loader mode. Then both node cannot boot up. you can see result in the first post.

Re: can ADP container ownership be different with root parition

Sounds like you followed the correct steps,  This isn't normal behaivor either.   

 

I would open a P1 with support and work through it with them rather than the forums, ( I wouldn't want you to loose any data).  

 

Re: can ADP container ownership be different with root parition

That’s not the normal steps at all. You never need to disable HA to power off systems (in general you should never disable HA on two node cluster unless following well defined procedure). I suspect OP confused HA and storage failover.

 

Because storage failover was not inhibited, one node is in failover. Now if it is also node that has epsilon (HA is disabled), this is really a problem. I agree, better open support case, it goes above normal forum level.

Re: can ADP container ownership be different with root parition

"I suspect OP confused HA and storage failover." Yep, thanks for catching that.   (no more responding to posts late for me).

And yeah,  now that I think about it you only disable it really when you grow from 2 to 4 and that's after the two new nodes are added.
