I need to give some history here. These servers are on a ISCSI device
and some time last night the device had a incident and all my mounted
drives went to readonly. When the servers tried to do the global
snapshot(s) everything got ugly. We rebooted the servers and the Iscsi
device but the File logs form this morning are not that helpful.
I have thousands of entrys in the FileLog but they are as a result of
the incident yesterday when the shares where read only.
As it turns out if you run vos listvol on the server itself its a little
quicker and now it seems we are back up for the most part.
I have often wondered however if there is a good way to periodically
check the status of the vols without running listvol an all the servers.
I think trolling through the backup server logs might do it as they will
report offline vols.
Thanks for all your responses.
