Description

Check Active IQ if this impacts your systems

  • Aggregate will report failed and foreign under the aggr status command and EMS may report RAID assimilation failures during reboot/takeover
    • Example: 

aggr0(1) failed          raid_dp, aggr         diskroot, raidtype=raid_dp, raidsize=24, 
                         foreign               raid_lost_write=on, resyncsnaptime=5, 

[?] Fri Jul 16 06:01:45 CDT [cluster1-01: config_thread: raid.assim.rg.missingChild:debug]: Aggregate partner_foreign:aggr0, rgobj_verify: RAID object 0 has only 5 valid children, expected 10.
[?] Fri Jul 16 06:01:45 CDT [cluster1-01: config_thread: raid.assim.plex.missingChild:debug]: Aggregate partner_foreign:aggr0, plexobj_verify: Plex 0 only has 0 working RAID groups (1 total) and is being taken offline
[?] Fri Jul 16 06:01:45 CDT [cluster1-01: config_thread: raid.assim.mirror.noChild:debug]: Aggregate partner_foreign:aggr0, mirrorobj_verify: No operable plexes found.
[?] Fri Jul 16 06:01:45 CDT [cluster1-01: cf_takeover: raid.fm.takeoverFail:alert]: RAID takeover failed: Partner label processing failed.
