I'm running dashboard command on my clustershell and found that vserver state is offline.
an0990-na-cl1::> dashboard health vserver show EMS Issues Vserver Status Health Crit Warn Info ----------------- -------- ------- ----- ----- ----- an0990-na-cl1-fcp offline ok 0 0 0 Issues: The filesystem protocols are not configured.
My vserver is running fine and is hosting data lun's.
I need to know why the status is offline ? and what exactly the status meant here ?
I thing your vservers are only configured with FCP, you have not configured NAS protocols like CIFS and NFS on them. That is the reason why they are showing as offline. The default behaviour in 7-mode vfilers is it will not support FCP only support CIFS and NFS. It is displaying in output it self why it is showing as offline.
In my environment i have 3 SVM's, 2 of them are SAN and remaining 1 SVM is NAS. THe NAS SVM showing as online and the 2 SAN SVM's showing as offline. Hope this will helps you.
