Accessing volumes in NVFAIL state after a switchover

After a switchover, you must clear the NVFAIL state by resetting the -in-nvfailed-state parameter of the volume modify command to remove the restriction of clients to access data.

Before you begin

The database or file system must not be running or trying to access the affected volume.

About this task

Setting -in-nvfailed-state parameter requires advanced-level privilege.


  1. Recover the volume by using the volume modify command with the -in-nvfailed-state parameter set to false.

After you finish

For instructions about examining database file validity, see the documentation for your specific database software.

If your database uses LUNs, review the steps to make the LUNs accessible to the host after an NVRAM failure.
