Last Updated:


Applies to

  • MetroCluster IP
  • ONTAP 9
  • MetroCluster in switchover


  • metrocluster switchback fails
  • metrocluster operation history shows:
Failed to validate the node and cluster components before the switchback operation.
CL02 (non-overridable veto): The Vserver configuration state was set to "degraded" because configuration replication failed. Reason: MetroCluster Vserver stream operation failed. Run the "metrocluster vserver show -configuration-state degraded -fields corrective-action" command to view detailed recovery information. The configuration replication operation will be retried and the Vserver configuration state might change.
  • metrocluster vserver show output shows reason for failure as:
Unrecoverable error during configuration replication, requires manual intervention. Error: Cannot find ports in IPspace "Default" on Node "CL01-N01" for placing LIF "CL01-N01_LIF01" in Vserver "SVM01_CL01".
  • network port show output shows that there are ports available in ipspace Default for the LIF
