Fencing off the disaster site

After the disaster, if the disaster site nodes must be replaced, you must halt them to prevent the site from resuming service. Otherwise, you risk the possibility of data corruption if clients start accessing the nodes before the replacement procedure is completed.

Procedure

Halt the nodes at the disaster site and keep them powered down or at the LOADER prompt until directed to boot ONTAP: system node halt -node disaster-site-node-name
If the disaster site nodes have been destroyed or cannot be halted, turn off power to the nodes and do not boot the replacement nodes until directed to in the recovery procedure.
