We are doing 7 mode fabric metrocluster tests on a customer. In almost all the tests we did unti now , have no problem, but in the scenario below, we see that the VMs in the ESXi hosts lost datastores when we shutdown the shelf on that with existing root aggregate of site-A. Do I have to miror root-aggregate on Site-A? Do I have to do this?
Expected behaviour: Relevant disks for offline and the plex is broken. There’s no disruption to data availability to hosts running HA (VMware High Availability) or FT (Fault Tolerance), no change is detected by the ESXi Server. When the shelf is powered back on the plexes will sync automatically
Thanks for quick reply.When I open the NetApp case and ask for 7 mode fabric metrocluster they said that it is not necessary(must) to mirror the root aggregate. Do you mean "have to" for my senario? Or do you always need to mirror it?
