Background disk firmware update and takeover and giveback

Background disk firmware updates affect HA pair takeover and giveback operations differently, depending on how those operations are initiated.

The following list describes how background disk firmware update affects takeover and giveback:
  • If a background disk firmware update is occurring on a disk on the source (or takeover) node, takeover operations are delayed for less than one minute until the disk firmware update completes on that disk.
  • If a background disk firmware update is occurring on a disk on a node and it panics, takeover of the panicked node begins immediately.
