Applies to

  • ONTAP 9.6-9.6P18, or versions less than 9.7P17, 9.8P9, 9.9.1P5, or 9.10.1 which do not have the fix for BUG 1383543.
  • FAS platforms

Issue

  • Multiple disk failure during a short term in one or multiple RAID groups. 
  • EMS reports disk latency has exceeded with average, so ONTAP recommends for failure:
