Issue

  • While configuring a MetroCluster IP, the HA interconnect does not come online after booting the nodes and configuring the cluster.

ClusterA::> cluster ha show
High Availability Configured: false

Warning: Cluster HA has not been configured.  Cluster HA must be configured
         on a two-node cluster to ensure data access availability in the
         event of storage failover. Use the "cluster ha modify -configured
         true" command to configure cluster HA.


ClusterA::> storage failover show
                              Takeover
Node           Partner        Possible State Description
-------------- -------------- -------- -------------------------------------
ClusterA-01   -              false    Waiting for partner, Takeover is not
                                       possible: Storage failover is
                                       disabled

ClusterA-02   -              false    Waiting for partner, Takeover is not
                                       possible: Storage failover is
                                       disabled

  • During boot, the following messages might be seen:

mccip_install_dr_ips: bootarg.ic_local_ip not set, bailing
iw_cxgbe: Chelsio T4/T5/T6 RDMA driver loaded

[cluster_A-01:cf.fsm.takeoverOfPartnerDisabled:error]: Failover monitor: takeover of ClusterA-02 disabled (HA interconnect error. Verify that the partner node is running and that the HA interconnect cabling is correct, if applicable. For further assistance, contact technical support).

  • Interfaces will report as down:
