What happens after takeover

After a takeover occurs, you view the surviving partner as having two identities, its own and its partner’s, that exist simultaneously on the same storage system. Each identity can access only the appropriate volumes and networks. You can send commands or log in to either storage system by using the rsh command, allowing remote scripts that invoke storage system commands through a Remote Shell connection to continue to operate normally.

Access with rsh

Commands sent to the failed node through a Remote Shell connection are serviced by the partner node, as are rsh command login requests.

Access with Telnet

If you log in to a failed node through a Telnet session, you will see a message alerting you that your storage system failed and to log in to the partner node instead. If you are logged in to the partner node, you can access the failed node or its resources from the partner node by using the partner command.
