It's 72 hours, and then the system halts.
The Data ONTAP operating system automatically detects unqualified disks.
If you attempt to use an unqualified disk and you use Data ONTAP 7.2.1, 7.2.2, or 7.2.3, the operating system responds by issuing a “delay forced shutdown” warning. The warning gives you 72 hours to remove and replace the unqualified disk before a forced system shutdown occurs. In Data ONTAP 7.2.4 and later, you receive a console warning.
In addition, when the Data ONTAP operating system detects an unqualified disk, it takes these actions:
- Provides notification through syslog entries, console messages, and the AutoSupport support tool
- Generates an automatic error message and performs a delayed forced shutdown if the /etc/qual_devices file is modified
- Marks unsupported disks as “unqualified”
I hope this response has been helpful to you.
