part of any install should be a takeover/giveback test before production is put on the system. Did you have a netapp install on this? It sounds like you went on your own without ever having done it before...and did quite a good job since it is working
No, I installed the system by myself and yes was the first time on NetApp storage
So, just to know if I've understood, the "partner" instance that I see when there is a takeover is real or virtual? Because the log on controller2 tells that the controller1 will do a gracefully shutdown..
Sorry for all those questions, but as I said this is my first NetApp product and I want to be sure what i'm doing before put it in production
Before you go live I would suggest you ensure that the Firmware is fully up to date to the latest RC release. Also I would suggest pulling the connectivity to the unit and ensure your NFS fails over in a timely manor that doesn't affect your environment. I knwo there are some tweaks on timeouts you can perform on Windows and VMware to aid this.
2240 has to run 8.1 which has been a pain point ny name at some customers since all rc code when installed. Getting the GA stamp helps there. For customers who can run 8.0.x I agree. Worth waiting for a more baked in GA release.
