About using FlexShare in active/active storage systems

If you use FlexShare on active/active storage systems, you must ensure that FlexShare is enabled or disabled on both nodes. Otherwise, a takeover can cause unexpected results.

After a takeover occurs, the FlexShare priorities you have set for volumes on the node that was taken over are still operational, and the takeover node creates a new priority policy by merging the policies configured on each individual node. For this reason, make sure that the priorities you configure on each node will work well together.
Note: You can use the partner command to make changes to FlexShare priorities on a node that has been taken over.
