Value of reviewing this information:

ONTAP Mediator service is not reachable from one or more nodes of the MetroCluster. An automatic unplanned switchover can not occur in this state.

How this check is validated? 

The check validates the iscsi connection to the ONTAP Mediator service. To verify issue the following commands:

ClusterA::*> storage iscsi-initiator show -label mediator
                                                                       Status
Node Type Label    Target Portal      Target Name                      Admin/Op
---- ---- -------- ------------------ -------------------------------- --------

          mediator 10.1.1.1       iqn.2012-05.local:mailbox.target.6616cd3f-9ef1-11e9-aada-00a098ccf5d8:a05e1ffb-9ef1-11e9-8f68-00a0affeaffe:1 up/down
2 entries were displayed.

ONTAP has not made a connection to the ONTAP Mediator service if the entry is displayed as down like in the example output above.
