SVM DR on ONTAP Select


Hello all,


Our customer runs ONTAP Select on vNAS.


The SVM on this 1node Select Cluster has SVM DR configured for it's CIFS volumes.

After a VMware host fails the VM is restarted on a second node with VMware HA.

The Select cluster is recovering as planned because of the Deploy Utility witness but the Source SVM on this cluster is declared "Locked" as the Cluster restarted.


In a physical world this is indeed normal behaviour but doesn't fit with ONTAP Select which supports VMware HA.


Is this a known issue and are there ways to configure the system to resolve it for our customer?
