ONTAP unable to serve iSCSI or Fibre Channel (FC) data from one node with FabricPool

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • Fabric Pool



  • An ONTAP node that owns an aggregate using fabric pool and the hosts see the LUNs but are unable to access the data.
  • Host logs show a medium error
In this example VMware vmkernel logs show a medium error when trying to access a LUN.

  • In diagnostic privelege on the cluster shell run 'event log show -messagename*'
If ONTAP shows the node owning the aggregate such as below, the issue is ObjectStore connectivity related.
