Eyeglass only runs one failover job at a time.
Failover has not started.
Eyeglass cannot communicate with source cluster.
This step is not run during uncontrolled failover.
Data Loss Impact - Failover cannot proceed, data loss scenario until resolved.
The timeout on this step read from the failover timeout value in minutes.
Replication Policy Failover run all policies
(SyncIQ Data Sync option enabled on failover job and multiple policies failed over)
Final incremental sync of data on the filesystem has failed.
Source and targets still in initial state meaning target cluster is read-only still
Eyeglass waits for up to failover over timeout value in minutes for each policy to run. It will abort with a timeout if the incremental sync takes longer than an hour. Wait for this job to finish, then restart the failover job to try again.
If the unsynced data on the source filesystem is unimportant and it's more important to get the target cluster file system writable, the Failover can be restarted with the “Data Sync” box unchecked. This will skip the final incremental sync, and will result in data loss for any data not previously replicated with SyncIQ.
NOTE: This step is not run during uncontrolled failover.
Run Configuration Replication now.
(Config Sync enabled in failover job)
Final sync of configuration shares/exports/aliases has failed.
Failover wil continue.
If the configuration on source and target are known to be identical, the Config Sync option can be unchecked when restarting failover to skip this step.
If the unsynced configuration on the source is unimportant and it's more important to get the target cluster file system writable, the Failover can be restarted with the “Config Sync” box unchecked. This will skip this step.
Note This step is not run during uncontrolled failover.
