Transfer NAS Services to Another Node
During NAS failover for 2-node NAS clusters, NAS management services are transferred from the failed master node to the passive node within the NAS cluster. When the original — or preferred — master node becomes available, fail back of NAS management services is not automatic. Instead you must manually transfer NAS management services to the preferred master node. You can perform this function by following the task below.
In addition, if you need to transfer NAS management services to another node because StorNext File System Management is running on the same node, you can do so using the following task.
- Log in to the controller console from the active master node. See Access the Appliance Controller Console.
- At the prompt, enter the following:
nascluster release master
NAS management services are released from the current node and returned to the preferred master node.
For NAS clusters of Xcellis WFE or G300 gateways that are configured without a VIP, this command will not return services to the preferred master.
