What happens if the storage system is rebooted while Wafliron is running

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9


If the storage system reboots while Wafliron is running, it will need to be started using the storage aggregate wafliron start command. However, the point at which the Wafliron starts following the power cycle depends on what phase it was in at the time of the reboot.

If Wafliron is stopped in:

  • Phase 1 (Mount), it must start from the beginning. 
  • Phase 2 or 3, any changes committed to the point of reboot will be retained, but Wafliron will start scanning again in Phase 1 wafliron start command.
