VNX5300 unified - Cannot change Data Mover role between Primary and Standby

Hello:

I have installed a VNX5300 Unified with one CS and two data movers.

I hace create one File system, CIFS Server and shared it correctly.

I´m testing the High Avavilability between Data Movers, but something is not Ok because:

If I shutdown active data Mover tthe Standby doesn´t take the Active Role.

In System -> Hardware -> Data Movers I can´t change the role status ( It´s not modificable ).

Any idea ?

Thanks

shutdown will not trigger failover, you need to initiate manual failover. In real world scenario when datamover panics, the standby one takes over.

Please take a look the Configuring Standby manual as to which actions trigger a failover
