Applies to

  • Data ONTAP 7 and earlier
  • Data ONTAP 8
  • ONTAP 9

Answer

 

  • With this value set to on, Data ONTAP ignores any filesystem inconsistencies that exist, or that might arise.
  • If set to on, contact NetApp Technical Support to address the issue.
  • Check Active IQ if this impacts your systems
  • To check via CLI run the following:

::>storage aggregate show -aggregate <aggr>

 

  • Example:

filer::> storage aggregate show -aggregate aggr0

                                         Aggregate: aggr0
                                    Checksum Style: block
                                   Number Of Disks: 3
                                            Mirror: false
                                              Node: filer

                      partitions for Mirrored Plex: -

                                         HA Policy: cfo
