Cluster alert: partner mailbox disks not accessible or invalid

Hi all,

 

My name is Hugo and this is my first time with this community. ;-).

 

We have two FAS3050 in cluster mode. We could see some days ago this message in the second Node:

Fri Jun 14 08:00:04 MEST [netapp2: statd:ALERT]: Cluster is licensed but takeover of partner is disabled due to reason : partner mailbox disks not accessible or invalid

 

but in Node1 every thing it´s ok. No problems detected with the cluster.

 

Any idea about how can we resolved this situation?? If Node1 go down we suppose that Node2 cann´t change to active state.

 

Thanks a lot, Hugo.
