  • ONTAP Upgrade on MetroCluster paused because switchover is vetoed:
::> cluster image show-update-progress
                                     Estimated         Elapsed
Cluster                               Duration        Duration Status
------------------------------ --------------- --------------- ----------------
cluster01                             XX:XX:XX       XX:XX:XX  completed
cluster02                             XX:XX:XX       XX:XX:XX  paused-on-error
Details: Switchover paused.
  • metrocluster operation show reports a failed switchover attempt: 

[Job XXXX] Job failed: Failed to validate the node and cluster components before the switchover operation. Use the "metrocluster operation show" command to view detailed error information. Resolve the errors, then try the comman again.

  • metroclsuter vserver show reports degraded data vserver(s): 
::> metrocluster vserver show
Cluster: cluster02
Partner                       Configuration
