when your triggering vol offline command can you check what it is logging in the messages file..?

no message on messages after the vol offline command only terminal it came up with above stated message. Nothing fishy on messages to offline this vol.

can you check :

set advanced or diag

filer*>ndmpd status

 

filer>backup status

 

if no NDMP or backup activity then best to do the failover & failback then give a try..(might be a hung process is not allowing to delete it)
