On a FAS2240-4 cluster running ontap version 8.1.2 in 7-mode. Status of the nodes:
Node 1: node1 has taken over Node2
Node 2: waiting for giveback
When doing a 'cf giveback', I'm getting the following message :
Partner not waiting for giveback, giveback cancelled.
To do a giveback without checking for partner readiness, please either set option "cf.giveback.check.partner" to off before doing "cf giveback" again or do "cf giveback -f".
I have the impressing this is the case because of the following reason:
slot 0: Interconnect HBA: Mellanox IB MT25204GUID: 0x100000a0983871ae LID: 0x4 Remote LID: 0x0Firmware rev: 1.0.800Hardware rev: 160Command rev: 1Cluster Interconnect Port: port not active
I guess a "cf giveback -f" will not succeed... Right?
Please refer KB https://kb.netapp.com/support/s/article/ka21A0000000fj6QAA/can-the-cf-giveback-f-command-be-disruptive?language=en_US
However if the interconnect has a failure then the nodes cannot communicate and the giveback will fail.
I did the giveback by using -f. All apllications and access to Netapp filer was stopped. But now I'm stuck with an interconnect issue...as I expected. Will be continued.
FAS2240-4 with error interconnect down. Any ideas?
