MetroCluster switchover and switchback

Contributors netapp-aherbin netapp-thomi

You can switchover from one MetroCluster site to the other to perform maintenance or recover from an issue.

Steps
  1. Click (Return to classic version).

  2. Click Configuration > MetroCluster.

    System Manager verifies whether a negotiated switchover is possible.

  3. Perform one of the following substeps when the validation process has completed:

    1. If validation fails, but Site B is up, then an error has occurred. For example, there might be a problem with a subsystem, or NVram mirroring might not be synchronized.

      1. Fix the issue that is causing the error, click Close, and then start again at Step 2.

      2. Halt the Site B nodes, click Close, and then perform the steps in Performing an unplanned switchover.

    2. If validation fails, and Site B is down, then most likely there is a connection problem. Verify that Site B is really down, then perform the steps in Performing an unplanned switchover.

  4. Click Switchover from Site B to Site A to initiate the switchover process.

  5. Click Switch to the new experience.
