storage failover takeover

Take over the storage of a node's partner

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The storage failover takeover command initiates a takeover of the partner node's storage.

Parameters

{  -ofnode {<nodename>|local} - Node to Takeover

This specifies the node that is taken over. It is shut down and its partner takes over its storage.

|  -bynode {<nodename>|local}  } - Node Initiating Takeover

This specifies the node that is to take over its partner's storage.

[-option <takeover option>] - Takeover Option

This optionally specifies the style of takeover operation. Possible values include the following:

[-bypass-optimization {true|false}] - Bypass Takeover Optimization

If this is an operator-initiated planned takeover, this parameter specifies whether the takeover optimization is bypassed. This parameter defaults to false.
Attention:

[-allow-disk-inventory-mismatch {true|false}] - Disk inventory

If this parameter is specified, the takeover operation is initiated even if the local node cannot see the partner's filesystem disks.
Attention:
Caution:

[-skip-lif-migration [true]] - Skip LIF Migration

This parameter specifies that LIF migration prior to takeover is skipped. Without this parameter, the command attempts to synchronously migrate data and cluster management LIFs away from the node prior to its takeover. If the migration fails or times out, the takeover is aborted.

Examples

The following example causes a node named node0 to initiate a negotiated optimized takeover of its partner's storage:
cluster1::> storage failover takeover -bynode node0
The following example causes a node named node0 to initiate an immediate takeover of its partner's storage:
cluster1::> storage failover takeover -bynode node0 -option immediate
