Stop Press: recent improvements to the check_netapp_pro suite of programs have enabled the removal of certain redundant cluster-mode parameters and functions, as well as reducing the configuration effort required for the checks, creating a more efficient source codebase which is easier to use.

The --node parameter to check_netapp_cluster.pl was a concern as it required the admin to know the node-names in advance, something that was not always possible or desirable.

So the code checking the cf-status has been moved to the legacy check_netapp7_cluster and into check_netapp_takeover for cluster-mode (cdot) devices. It can be switched off there with the new --no-cf_check parameter.

As always the latest code can be downloaded from theĀ Q-Portal. For more information on exactly what has changed and when, please check out the release history.
