Restoring the root volume of an SVM

If the root volume of a Storage Virtual Machine (SVM) becomes unavailable, clients cannot mount the root of the namespace. In such cases, you must restore the root volume by promoting another volume or creating a new root volume to facilitate data access to the clients.

Before you begin

SVM root volume must be protected by using the load-sharing mirror copy or data-protection copy.

About this task

You can promote any volume that does not have other volumes junctioned to it.

When a new volume is promoted as the SVM root volume, the data volumes are associated with the new SVM root volume.

Choices

After you finish

You must mount the new root volume by using the volume mount command.
