Issue

  • While the customer was performing firmware updates on their E-Series storage arrays the attached ONTAP Fabric Metrocluster reported multiple disks failed due to SCSI timeout errors:
 
Example:
Fri Dec 04 20:09:18 EST [node1: config_thread: raid.config.filesystem.disk.not.responding:notice]: File system Disk /node1/plex0/rg0/switch1:12.126L119 Shelf - Bay - [NETAPP   INF-01-00        0842] S/N [xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] UID [xxxxxxxx:xxxxxxxx:xxxxxxxx:xxxxxxxx:00000000:00000000:00000000:00000000:00000000:00000000] is not responding.
  • These errors lead to multiple syncmirror plex failures on both clusters in the Metrocluster.

Example:

Aggregate aggrname (online, raid0, mirror degraded) (block checksums)
  Plex /aggrname/plex0 (offline, failed, inactive)
    RAID group /aggrname/plex0/rg0 (partial, block checksums)
