Enabling and disabling automatic giveback after takeover due to partner panicking

Data ONTAP is configured by default to initiate an automatic giveback after an automatic takeover that occurred due to the partner node panicking. This shortens the time between the initial failure and the full restoration of service.

  • If you enter this command on one node, the value applies to both nodes.
  • The setting of this option is persistent across reboots.
  • This option is not affected by the setting of the cf.giveback.auto.enable option.

    If cf.giveback.auto.enable is set to OFF, automatic giveback after takeover due to panic still occurs if cf.giveback.auto.after.panic.takeover is set to ON.

  1. Ensure that you enabled controller takeover by entering the following command:cf enable
  2. Enable or disable automatic giveback after takeover on panic by entering the following command:options cf.giveback.auto.after.panic.takeover {on|off} on enables automatic giveback to the partner. This is the default value.

    off disables automatic giveback after takeover on panic.
