metrocluster configuration-settings connection connect

Configure the network connections between partner nodes

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The metrocluster configuration-settings connection connect command configures the connections that mirror NV logs and access remote storage between partner nodes in a MetroCluster setup.

This command is used for MetroCluster setups that are connected though IP links. MetroCluster setups that are connected through FC links will configure the FC connections automatically.

The metrocluster configuration-settings commands are run in the following order to set up MetroCluster:
Before this command is run
After this command completes successfully, every node will:
  • Have NV log mirroring configured and mirroring disabled. NV log mirroring will be enabled by the metrocluster configure command.
  • Have access to remote storage. Use the storage disk show -pool Pool1 command to view the remote disks that are hosted on DR partner nodes.

The DR groups and network logical interfaces that were configured by the metrocluster configuration-settings commands cannot be deleted after the connections have been configured. The metrocluster configuration-settings connection disconnect command must be run to remove the connections before the DR groups and network logical interfaces can be deleted.

Examples

The following example shows configuration of connections in a MetroCluster over IP setup:

clusA::> metrocluster configuration-settings connection connect
[Job 269] Job succeeded: Connect is successful.
