Metro Cluster Failover

franciskim

In a two node stretch metro cluster configuration, what is the expected failover behavior during a site outage (e.g. power outage to one controller and its stack of disk shelves)?

 

Is it automatic, the same as you expect from an HA-pair, or is it manually initiated (e.g. cf forcetakeover, etc.)?

It is manual using cf forcetakeover -d.

that's not true !

 

as soon either the partner node nor the shelves will be seen,  no automatic TO will happen !
