Issue

Disabling the intercluster LIF on the primary node Config Replication service (CRS) causes unhealthy SVMs(Vservers).

 

Cluster peer health only through the node with LIF up:
mcc-siteA::*> cluster peer health show

Node         Cluster Name                Node-Name
----         ------------                ---------

             Ping-Status                 RDB-Health    Cluster-Health    Availability
----------   ------------                ------------   --------------   -------------
mcc-siteA-01  mcc-siteB   mcc-siteB-01
              Data: interface_reachable
              ICMP: interface_reachable   true              true            true
                          mcc-siteB-02
             Data: interface_reachable
             ICMP: interface_reachable    true              true            true
mcc-siteA-02
              mcc-siteB   mcc-siteB-01
              Data: unreachable
              ICMP: unreachable           true               true            false
                          mcc-siteB-02
             Data: unreachable
             ICMP: unreachable            true               true            false

 

MetroCluster Vserver shows unhealthy:
mcc-siteA::*> metrocluster vserver show

Cluster: mcc-siteA-ams1
                            Partner                       Configuration
Vserver                     Vserver                       State
-------------------         ----------------------        -----------------
mcc-siteA-ams1              mcc-siteB                     unhealthy

Cluster: mcc-siteB
                            Partner                       Configuration
Vserver                     Vserver                       State
-------------------         ----------------------        -----------------
mcc-siteB                   mcc-siteA                      unhealthy
vs_cifs                     vs_cifs-mc                     unhealthy
