This message occurs every hour when the high-availability (HA) interconnect is down.
- Corrective Action
Base the corrective action on the number and type of HA interconnect links supported by the platform and the reason for which the interconnect is down. If links are down: Verify that both controllers in the HA pair are operational. For externally connected links, make sure that the interconnect cables are connected properly and that small form-factor pluggable (SFP) modules, if applicable, are seated properly on both controllers. For internally connected links, disable and reenable the links one at a time by using the (privilege: advanced) "system ha interconnect link off" and "system ha interconnect link on" commands. If links are disabled: Enable the links by using the "system ha interconnect link on" command. If a peer is not connected: Disable and reenable the links one at a time by using the "system ha interconnect link off" and "system ha interconnect link on" commands. If the problem persists, contact NetApp technical support.
