Answer

No, running both Tiebreaker and Mediator on one system is not supported - only one of them should be used

Additional Information

  • If Tiebreak is configured event log will show similar notification messages daily: 

[NodeA: svc_queue_thread: app.log.info:info]: NetApp MetroCluster Tiebreaker Software 1.21: (1) Monitor: Monitoring Metro Cluster in Observer Mode

  • To check if ONTAP Mediator is setup: 

::*> storage iscsi-initiator show -label mediator
