This message occurs when locks established through CIFS Continuously Available (CA) shares on an aggregate are dropped after takeover, giveback, or aggregate relocation. This causes clients to see a service disruption on the aggregate.
- Corrective Action
Confirm that the aggregate is online by using the 'aggr show -aggregate [name of the aggregate] -fields state' command. Then reopen files to reestablish CA locks. For further information about correcting the problem, search the knowledgebase of the NetApp technical support support web site for the "lmgr.aggr.CA.locks.dropped" keyword.
