- Last Updated:

In a MetroCluster configuration, a backhoe describes the situation when all communication between the 2 clusters has been cut.
- Each cluster remains online and serving its own data independently
- There is no NVRAM replication
- There is no SyncMirror replication
- There is no vserver config replication
|Note: Performing a switchover operation while in this state could result in data loss or serving out-of-date data.|
