All, The following shows our current setup of failover groups in our cluster1 and have an issue with failover.
nas001::> failover-groups show
The home port for data lif is given as nas001a:a0a
we made the data lif move to nas001b:a0b and took out the cables which essentially makes "nas001b:a0b" down and we lost the connectivity to the data lif.
This should not be occuring because nas001a:a0a, nas001a:a0b and nas001b:a0a were up and running but it did not failed over.
Any suggestion or are we missing soemthing.
What is failover policy? Failover group only defines possible candidates; how these candidates are selected is determined by failover policy.
This is our first cluster and here is the policy.
nas001::> network interface show -failover
svm001a_cifs_lif1 nas001a:a0a system-defined 1G
Failover Targets: nas001a:a0a, nas001a:a0b,
In this situation at least the data lif should have failed over to the failover group nas001b:a0a when a0b on the same node was not availble.
