Applies to

  • MetroCluster FC
  • ONTAP 9.5P4
  • Aggregate on both cluster sides not unique
  • Switchover/Switchback

Issue

  • Both cluster in a MetroCluster own aggregates with not unique names
  • After switchover the surviving side (cluster2) owns all aggregates but renames the remote duplicate ones
  • When trying to rename the aggregate you might see the error:

Error: command failed: Specified aggregate resides on the remote cluster.  Execute command from that cluster.

  • After switchback the surviving side (cluster2) still shows outdated information with the renamed aggregate name
    • Example: aggr_01_renamed_20190916183817_1944209513
  • cluster1 shows correct (original) name
  • Manually renaming still not possible
  • The aggregate looks like this during switchover
