No root aggregate or root traditional volume found.

You must specify a root aggregate or traditional volume with

"aggr options <name> root" before rebooting the system.

anyone got an idea how to get my system back online?




You have failed root aggregate. You should open support case immediately so the cause can be investigated. Apparently one of LUNs is missing.


This is the right answer. 

You're missing an array LUN.  Check the array, and see if a RAID group has failed.  But after you've called 1-888-4-NETAPP and opened a case.
