::> system health alert show -alert-id ClusterSwitchMissing_Alert -instance

                      Node: node1
                   Monitor: cluster-switch
                  Alert ID: ClusterSwitchMissing_Alert
         Alerting Resource: cluster1-02
                 Subsystem: Switch-Health
           Indication Time: Wed Nov 27 10:22:08 2019
        Perceived Severity: Major
            Probable Cause: Configuration_error
               Description: Redundant configuration is missing for cluster switches.
        Corrective Actions: 
1) Ensure that a redundant pair of cluster switches exists in the network.
2) Ensure that cluster ports are connected to both switches.
3) Enable the Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP)/Industy Standard Discovery Protocol(ISDP)
on switches, if you previously disabled it. CDP/ISDP is enabled by default.
Refer to your switch documentation for instructions.
4) If Data ONTAP cannot automatically discover a switch, use the "system cluster-switch create"
command to configure discovery and monitoring of the switch.
