In practice, many CIFS applications can handle a LIF failover to another node in a cluster. For applications that cannot, this might result in a “Lost Delayed Write” operation, but only (in my understanding) if those clients use Opportunistic Locking to cache the server’s file data locally, without updating it on the server as it’s manipulated locally by a client app.
Re: Anyone want to discuss what NetApp DOT 8.0 Cluster-mode is?
In C-mode the the user will get disconnected if there is any activity/disruption occurs on the node on which the volume is created (which is used for share creation).Only the hosts (hypervisor) which are accessing the share with SMB 3.0 can access the share without any disruption.You have to enable the continous availabity option in the share to make the share available without disruption for Hypervisor.
Please comments on the response ..if it is not correct .
