Description

As part of error handling during MetroCluster switchover operations, a volume can end in an nvfailed state.
More information can be found in the MetroCluster install and configuration guide.

This article covers on how to recover a system volume like ONTAP's Metadata Volumes (MDV) from this situation.
INFO: This article does not cover data volumes. The instructions for restoring access to data volumes can be found here.
 
To identify if a volume is in an nvfailed state, run the following command:

site1::> vol show -in-nvfailed-state true
There are no entries matching your query.

In the above example, no volume is in nvfailed state.
 

site1::> vol show -in-nvfailed-state true
