|One node might be down.|
|Version mismatch.||The partner node has an incompatible version of Data ONTAP.|
|partner_name_1 is attempting takeover of partner_name_2, takeover is in module n of N modules.||A takeover is being attempted (includes information about how far the takeover has progressed).|
