During the last few Data OnTAP upgrades on cdot, I've noticed that givebacks get vetoed because a CIFS Server is in use. I had stopped CIFS on the CIFS Servers I thought were hosted on the node I was upgrading, but apparently I was incorrect because the one that vetoed the giveback wasn't in my list.
I had assumed you could determine which nodes hosted which CIFS connections by which node currently hosted the LIF for a CIFS Server, but that appears to be incorrect. Does anyone know how to definitively know which cluster node is hosting a CIFS Server, so I'll know which ones to disable during an upgrade?
Thanks Raj. Makes sense that I should base it on where the volumes are hosted, not the LIFs. I had thought I'd kept all volumes for each CIFS SVM on the same node, but I may have missed one. I will check. Thanks!
