Answer

Yes, in a MetroCluster environment, all Storage Virtual Machine (SVM) root volumes must be hosted on a mirrored aggregate.

Additional Information

Identify the SVM root volumes that are not hosted on a mirrored aggregate and use vol move to migrate them to a mirrored aggregate.

  ClusterA::*> vol show -vsroot true
  Vserver   Volume       Aggregate    State      Type       Size  Available Used%
  --------- ------------ ------------ ---------- ---- ---------- ---------- -----
  svm1      svm_root     unmirrored   online     RW          1GB    972.3MB    0%

 

ClusterA::*> storage aggregate show -mirror true
