Negociate switchover on port failed



I installed a metrocluster AFF8040 2-nodes.


is it possible to configure the metrocluster to negociate a switchover if some network ports are offline ?

For Example, e0a and e0b are used for NFS, and if this ports are down, so a switchover is negociated.


Thank You.

Yes, you can configure lif failover. Refer http://docs.netapp.com/ontap-9/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.netapp.doc.dot-cm-nmg%2FGUID-94D4F8DD-3437-4474-81A6-9DB6FF6A244D.html&cp=10_0_9

Are you sure you have not misunderstood the question? If you have not, please point to the place in documentation which describes negotiated switchover due to all LIF ports down. So far documentation states the following reasons for AUSO: Node power down, Node power loss, Node panic, Node reboot. Nothing about network whatsoever.
