HA Pair 7 mode

Hello,

 

        We have 2 contrillers namely Ctrl1 and Ctrl2 both are FAS3240 connected to DS4243 and DS224 in HA Pair. 

 

1) I would like to know which controller is the primary node. ?

 

2) If ctrl2 is the primary node then how can i let ctrl1 act as a primary node.

 

when I do a cf giback 

ctrl2 is is giving back and ctrl1 show me takeover mode.

 

I want ctrl1 to be primary node and in case the problem occurs ctrl2 should take over.

 

Thanks

They are active/active,  there is no offical "standby" node.    Both nodes serve out data at the same time. 

During a takeover,  one node will take ownership of its partners aggr/volumes/etc and continue to serve out data.  

 

If you have one showing that it's takenover,  you might have an issue with the node that's been taken over.
