Issue

  • Partner node is removed from chassis (usually for replacement) and up node panics with string:

PANIC  : Partner Present: invalid partner module

  • Node will continue to boot loop with this panic message until partner is reinserted into chassis
  • This can also occur in a 2-node stretch MetroCluster configuration where there is no locally installed partner controller in the chassis
    • An automatic unplanned switchover (AUSO) will occur when one of the single node clusters in the MetroCluster panics
