Loss of backend connections in MCCIP due to HSRP configuration during switch reboot

Last Updated:


Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • Metrocluster over IP
  • Shared L3 Network
  • HSRP (Hot Standby Router Protocol)


  • While one switch or pair of switches is rebooted in the MCCIP, all of the ISCSI connections to remote site are timing out
  • There is a total loss of connection to the remote site/disks despite having the alternate path on second pair of MCCIP switches available at this time
  • If ONTAP Mediator is configured and also becomes unreachable during the switch reboot, the controllers would halt with the following message
