We are currently setting up a new FAS2554 system runinng OnTAP 9. I was revewing the prerequisites for cluster peering. It says 2 ports per node are required. The FAS unit we have only has a single controller in it. Will cluster peering work in a single controller enviroment or do we require a HA setup? This system is running a single controller as it s a backup NAS.
You do not need HA Pair to establish cluster peering. The only requirement is full mesh - each node of one cluster must be able to speak with each node of other cluster. Two ports aer recommended from redundancy considreations, but this is not required.
Thanks for the reply. I was able to setup a test intracluster SVM peer relationship. One possible issue. The target SVM machine only has a single controller. The other cluster has two controllers HA setup. Because the target machine only has one controller the HA node is showing "partial" availability. Is there something I should do to fix this?
