Switchback simulate failing after motherboard replacement

Last Updated:


Applies to

  • 2-Node stretch MetroCluster
  • ONTAP 9
  • Errors appear after a motherboard replacement


  • The command 'metrocluster switchback -simulate true' fails because one or more vserver configs are degraded
Failed to validate the node and cluster components before the switchback operation. <cluster> (non-overridable veto): Internal error. The Vserver configuration state was set to "degraded" because configuration replication failed. Reason: MetroCluster Vserver stream operation failed. Run "metrocluster vserver show -configuration-state degraded -fields corrective-action" to view detailed recovery information.
  • The output of 'metrocluster vserver show' reports an error regarding a missing license on one or more of the vservers
Unrecoverable error during configuration replication, requires manual intervention. Error: You do not have a valid license for "FCP". Reason: Package "FCP" is not licensed in the cluster.
