Issue

When interrupting an in-progress Element upgrade of a storage cluster using the command-line Health Tools (sfinstall) or HCC, the following error messages may appear:

Disable drum failed:Cannot disable drum, there are active standbys Error: SolidFireApiError server=[10.x.x.x] method=[DisableStandbySliceAssignments], params=[{}] - error name=[xSliceStandbysWithDataExist], message=[Cannot disable: slice x has active or failed standby], code=[500], retryable=[False]


Volumes went offline during upgrade. Refer to the volumesOffline cluster fault in the Error Log for affected Volume IDs. Contact NetApp support immediately to find the root cause and resolve this problem.

When cross-referencing this alert against the cluster's web UI or Active IQ, however, there is no associated volumesOffline alert and I/O to the cluster is not interrupted.
