Metrocluster test failover with unmirrored volumes and CIFS

Hello Experts,

I have some unmirrored volumes for my database servers that are not replicated on the DR site and vise versa. It has its own H.A on the database side. What happens if I start failover? do I still need manual adjustment for non-mirrored volumes? How about CIFS currently configured on both sides. What are the steps in handling CIFS share prior to the activity. Please advise.

If your configuration includes unmirrored aggregates, you must be aware of potential access issues after switchover operations.

do you use MetroCluster IP or an FC MetroCluster setup?
