  • During ANDU  the first node reboot to 9.9.1 the node is stuck in "waiting for reservations to clear" as seen in SP console.
Waiting for reservations to clear
Oct 09 16:18:17 [cluster-02:cf.disk.ResvFail:ALERT]: Disk 0a.30.13P3 has been reserved by the High Availability (HA) partner as part of a takeover operation.
Oct 09 16:18:17 [cluster-02:cf.disk.ResvTakeOver:notice]: This node will wait for giveback and the disk reservations to be released.
 
  • Visual inspection of the BES-53248 switch shows the storage ports e1a and e1b to switch ports 0/5 and 0/6 are dark, no link light, on one or both switches.
  • Validate Interconnect state is down using node shell on up node.
