Aggregate reports status as "failed,out-of-date" after  MetroCluster IP forced switchover

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • MetroCluster IP (MCC IP)
  • ONTAP 9


  • MCC_A-02 has failed and needs the MB to be replaced. Only MCC_A-01 is online and has taken over the MCC_A-02
  • MetroCluster forced switchover is performed with the command metrocluster switchover -forced-on-disaster true -override-vetoes true
  • Node MCC_A-01 shut down triggered  by MCC_B  because of forced switchover operation
  • After the switchover completed, the data aggregates of cluster MCC_A report status as "failed, raid_dp, out-of-date" 
  • The plex0 shows the status as "offline, failed, inactive"
  • The plex1 shows the status as "offline, normal, out-of-date"
For example:
MCC_B-01> aggr status -r MCC_A-01_aggr1
Aggregate MCC_A-01_aggr1 (failed, raid_dp, out-of-date) (block checksums)
Plex /MCC_A-01_aggr1/plex0 (offline, failed, inactive)
Plex /MCC_A-01_aggr1/plex1 (offline, normal, out-of-date)
RAID group /MCC_A-01_aggr1/plex1/rg0 (normal, block checksums)
