When booting up I usually watch ONTAP's console and wait for the point where the login prompt is issued to see that it's up and running. Recently I've noticed the ' whole cluster DB process' takes awhile longer to come. In particular I notice the cluster_mgmt interface doesn't respond. So I log into the node_mgmt interface and type 'net int show' and see only the node_mgmt LIF and some other commands don't work. CPU usage is high during this phase but after N minutes all the interfaces, vservers, etc become available.
I'm wondering if other see this delay and if so, how long it is? I just saw one that took 30 minutes to come fully up.
I do remember seeing this many times, but I haven't hit it lately. On first boot, the cluster gets through create and come up pretty quickly. Then on subsequent boots after its been configured you get to the cluster shell a _long_ time before the cluster rings all come up. I was just doing 'cluster ring show' until the DBs are online. Theres another delay I used to hit during boot where it would hang with 1 second on the countdown for 5-10 minutes, but that seems to be fixed in newer loaders.
