Last Updated:

Applies to

  • MetroCluster Systems


  •  metrocluster check run job just fails:

cluster02::> metrocluster check run

The operation has been started and is running in the background. Wait for
it to complete and run "metrocluster check show" to view the results. To
check the status of the running metrocluster check operation, use the command,
"metrocluster operation history show -job-id 2754"

cluster02::> metrocluster operation history show -job-id 2754
Operation                     State          Start Time               End Time
----------------------------- -------------- ----------------         ----------------
check                         failed         6/24/2021 10:59:30     6/24/2021 10:59:30


  •  metrocluster operations history show  displays a previous job as still in-progress state and all subsequently run check jobs as failed:

cluster02::> metrocluster operation history show 
Operation                     State          Start Time       End Time
----------------------------- -------------- ---------------- ----------------
check                         failed         6/24/2021 11:17:18 6/24/2021 11:17:18
check                         failed         6/24/2021 11:08:38 6/24/2021 11:08:38
switchover-simulate           successful     6/20/2021 12:26:29 6/20/2021 12:26:33
switchover-simulate           successful     6/20/2021 12:25:49 6/20/2021 12:25:53
check                         in-progress    6/15/2021 02:15:00 -

  • The jobs can be filtered by status:

cluster02::> metrocluster operation history show -state in-progress

Operation                     State          Start Time       End Time
----------------------------- -------------- ---------------- ----------------

check                         in-progress    6/15/2021 02:15:00 -

  • The job ID can be found by:

cluster02::> metrocluster operation history show -state in-progress -fields job-id
operation-uuid                       job-id
