Confirming that the DR partners have come online

Contributors netapp-ranuk NetAppZacharyWambold

After the switchover is complete, you should verify that the DR partners have taken ownership of the disks and the partner SVMs have come online.

  1. Confirm that the aggregate disks have switched over to the disaster site: storage disk show -fields owner,dr-home

    In this example, the output shows that the switched over disks have the dr-home field set:

    cluster_A::> storage disk show -fields owner,dr-home
    disk                 owner           dr-home
    -------------------- --------------- -------
    1.11.0               node_A_1        node_B_1
    1.11.1               node_A_1        node_B_1
    1.11.2               node_A_1        node_B_1
    1.11.3               node_A_1        node_B_1
    1.11.4               node_A_1        node_B_1
    1.11.5               node_A_1        node_B_1
    1.11.6               node_A_1        node_B_1
    1.11.7               node_A_1        node_B_1
    1.11.8               node_A_1        node_B_1
  2. Check that the aggregates were switched over by using the storage aggregate show command.

    In this example, the aggregates were switched over. The root aggregate (aggr0_b2) is in a degraded state. The data aggregate (b2_aggr2) is in a mirrored, normal state:

    cluster_A::*> storage aggregate show
    mcc1-b Switched Over Aggregates:
    Aggregate     Size Available Used% State   #Vols  Nodes            RAID Status
    --------- -------- --------- ----- ------- ------ ---------------- ------------
    aggr0_b2    227.1GB   45.1GB    80% online       0 node_A_1        raid_dp,
    b2_aggr1    227.1GB   200.3GB    20% online       0 node_A_1       raid_dp,
  3. Confirm that the secondary SVMs have come online by using the vserver show command.

    In this example, the previously dormant sync-destination SVMs on the secondary site have been activated and have an Admin State of running:

    cluster_A::*> vserver show
                                              Admin      Operational  Root                 Name    Name
    Vserver           Type  Subtype           State      State        Volume    Aggregate  Service Mapping
    -----------       ----- ----------        ---------- -----------  --------- ---------- ------- -------
