MetroCluster backend LUNs show disk failed during E-Series FW update

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • FAS8200
  • ONTAP 9.3
  • Fabric Metrocluster
  • E-Series Backend


  • While the customer was performing firmware updates on their E-Series storage arrays the attached ONTAP Fabric Metrocluster reported multiple disks failed due to SCSI timeout errors:
Fri Dec 04 20:09:18 EST [node1: config_thread: raid.config.filesystem.disk.not.responding:notice]: File system Disk /node1/plex0/rg0/switch1:12.126L119 Shelf - Bay - [NETAPP   INF-01-00        0842] S/N [xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] UID [xxxxxxxx:xxxxxxxx:xxxxxxxx:xxxxxxxx:00000000:00000000:00000000:00000000:00000000:00000000] is not responding.
  • These errors lead to multiple syncmirror plex failures on both clusters in the Metrocluster.
