ONTAP 9.14

to Japanese version

Link between Site B and mediator down and Site A down

To check on the connection of the ONTAP Mediator, use the snapmirror mediator show command. If the connection status is unreachable and Site B is unable to reach Site A, you will have an output similar to the one below. Follow the steps in the solution to restore connection

Force a failover to enable I/O from Site B and then establish a zero RTO relationship from Site B to Site A. Complete the following steps to perform a forced failover on Site B.

  1. Unmap all LUNs belonging to the consistency group from Site B.

  2. Delete the SnapMirror consistency group relationship using the force option.

  3. Enter the SnapMirror break command (snapmirror break -destination_path svm:_volume_) on the consistency group constituent volumes to convert volumes from DP to RW, to enable I/O from Site B.

    You must issue the SnapMirror break command for each relationship in the consistency group. For example, if there are three volumes in the consistency group, you will issue the command for each volume.

  4. Boot up the Site A nodes to create a zero RTO relationship from Site B to Site A.

  5. Release the consistency group with relationship-info-only on Site A to retain common Snapshot copy and unmap the LUNs belonging to the consistency group.

  6. Convert volumes on Site A from RW to DP by setting up a volume level relationship using either Sync policy or Async policy.

  7. Issue the snapmirror resync command to synchronize the relationships.

  8. Delete the SnapMirror relationships with Sync policy on Site A.

  9. Release the SnapMirror relationships with Sync policy using relationship-info-only true on Site B.

  10. Create a consistency group relationship between Site B to Site A.

  11. From the source cluster, resynchronize the consistency group. Verify the consistency group state is in sync.

  12. Rescan the host LUN I/O paths to restore all paths to the LUNs.
