What is the impact of Azure maintenance freeze events Non Continuously Available (CA) CIFS shares on CVO

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • Microsoft Azure
  • Maintenance Events - Freeze
  • Cloud Volumes ONTAP 9.0 and later (Single Node in Azure)
  • Cloud Volumes ONTAP 9.5 and later ( HA pair in Azure)
  • Takeover / Giveback
  • Non Continuously Available (CA) CIFS/SMB shares


Impact of freeze events Non Continuously Available (CA) CIFS shares:

  • On single node during freeze events the CIFS shares are unavailable.
  • On HA pair, connection from clients to non-CA CIFS shares is disconnected on takeover and clients have to reconnect while the node is in takeover.
  • On giveback locks on CIFS shares are still in place and vetoes the giveback procedure which can be manually over-riden.
  • Cloud Manager provides an optional setting to override the veto automatically.
