Has anyone experienced their vmware datastores looses properties and causing machines to fail during v-motion or view clients to not connect in Vsphere after a failover of the filers?
I had to fail over my B filer so that i could halt it to correct a bug with the on board battery. I followed the standard procedure and took off autogive back and did a take over with my A filer. While the B filer was rebooting hit Cntrl-C and chose option 5 to put into maintance mode. I then issued the halt. I then put the filers back in autogive back and issued the boot-ontap. This process probably took 10 - 15 minutes.
Everything came back up as usual and all looked well. This morning our VMView users immediatly started calling saying there machines wouldnt connect and we noticed you couldnt vmotion any servers either. I looked under the confguration/storage tab on my host and when you select a datastore it showed a blank screen for the properties. once i issued the rescan disk command everything showed up fine
Im wondering if this is a bug with ontap or vmware, or if its my process of failing over the filers.
