Can anyone provide insight on the following error message? What type of MetroCluster error may have occured to generate this message? Are there any commands I can run to find out more info?
node-01: node-02: Metro Cluster Status Error Do you wish to proceed with system start? ([n],y)
If I answer "y", the system appears to come up fine.
But the fact it is asking me, I assuming there is some sort of MetroCluster error. Trying to figure out some more specifics.
Any insight appreciated.
Given that I'm teaching MetroCluster for a client in India this week this post realy caught my attention !
Best guess is that there was an unkown failure of the cluster, and the systems weren't sure of the state before the failure.
It was probably a check to prevent a bad resync if there was a split brain scenario.
I'd want to check the logs on both sides of the cluster to see what happened before the break.
I probably would have isolated the down system and done this before proceeding with bringing the failed node back online.
Thank you for this timely question.
I'll probably use it as a teaching example in the morning.
