Starting with ONTAP 9.7, the ONTAP Mediator service can assist the MetroCluster IP configuration in performing an automatic unplanned switchover by providing a physically separate repository for status information.

  • The ONTAP Mediator service and MetroCluster Tiebreaker software should not both be used with the same MetroCluster configuration.

  • The ONTAP Mediator service can support up to five MetroCluster configurations simultaneously.
