Verifying path failover for array LUNs

You want to demonstrate that the Data ONTAP system continues to work when running with a single path, for example, when a switch or storage array port is taken offline. You can test path failover by physically removing fibre cables or taking ports offline using Data ONTAP commands.

The procedure you use to test path failover differs slightly, depending on whether you are testing a stand-alone system or an HA pair.
