I’ve inherited an old 6040 with 4 shelves running ONTAP 7.3. The problem I’ve encountered and can’t seem to get past is enabling HA. Cluster licensing has been enabled on both nodes but I keep seeing CF not initialized. Cabling seems to be correct and I have the HA cables connected properly as I get a green light on the HA card but no yellow light indicating communication.
Upon rebooting one of the nodes I noticed the following error:
cf.fm.missingAdapter:error]: Warning: clustering is licensed yet an interconnect adapter was not found
I then ran a sysconfig –a and retrieved the following information:
slot 2: NVRAM (NetApp NVRAM VI)
Serial Number: 628106
Memory Size: 512 MB
Battery 1 Status: OK (4032 mV)
Charger 1 Status: OFF
Running Firmware: 9 (4.7.600)
Cluster Interconnect Port 1: copper
Cluster Interconnect Port 2: copper
memory mapped I/O base 0xc1000000, size 0x100000
prefetchable memory base 0xc0800000, size 0x800000
prefetchable memory base 0x3100000000, size 0x20000000
It would seem that the system is detecting the interconnect card but it’s not working. Is there a special command to enable the card? (because if there is I haven't found it). I find it strange that both nodes are behaving the same way with the interconnect cards.
