nv.partner events

nv.partner.disabled

Severity

INFORMATIONAL

Description

This message occurs when checking the partner nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) and the partner NVRAM is disabled. This event most commonly occurs during the takeover or switchover process after the partner has gone down.

Corrective Action

(None).

Syslog Message

NVRAM validate: %s NVRAM was disabled.

Parameters

host (STRING): Name of the partner host.

nv.partner.nvcheck.failure

Severity

ALERT

Description

This message occurs when nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) inconsistencies are detected during takeover. Takeover is continued only if the option for consistent NVRAM mirroring is disabled or if the takeover is forced.

Corrective Action

When the partner node recovers, NVRAM will be reinitialized to a consistent state. The error string provides additional information to assist NetApp technical support in identifying the inconsistency and subsystem that caused the failure.

Syslog Message

NVRAM validate: %s

Parameters

error (STRING): Error string describing which subsystem caused the failure and what the mismatching values are.

nv.partner.size.mismatch

Severity

ALERT

Description

This message occurs when the HA pair nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) sizes do not match. In this case, an HA pair cannot be formed.

Corrective Action

Check to make sure that the local NVRAM hardware size matches the partner NVRAM hardware size. Verify that the same bootargs are in use on both nodes. One or both nodes might need to be rebooted. Contact NetApp technical support if the problem persists.

Syslog Message

CF monitor: NVRAM size mismatch between nodes detected; node requires %llu bytes, partner exported %llu bytes.

Parameters

localNVSize (LONGINT): Size of the local NVRAM.
partnerNVSize (LONGINT): Size of the partner NVRAM.

nv.partner.takeover.continued

Severity

ALERT

Description

This message occurs when takeover proceeds even when nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) inconsistencies are detected in the HA pair. This most commonly occurs when the NVRAM mirror consistency has been disabled or if the takeover is forced.

Corrective Action

(None).

Syslog Message

NVRAM validate: Error encountered (%s), but continuing takeover; some data might be lost.

Parameters

error (STRING): Error string.
