Cluster Service Monitoring - Is There An Alert When a Volume is Available? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We've seen some alerts that show a shared volume is no longer available. They look something like this

     Alert: Shared Volume IO is paused
    Source: Cluster Service
    Path: Host.domain.com
    Last modified by: System
    Last modified time: 2/14/2011 7:16:10 AM Alert description: Cluster Shared Volume 'Volume4' ('Exchange Mail Data') is no longer available on this node because of 'STATUS_CONNECTION_DISCONNECTED(c000020c)'. All I/O will temporarily be queued until a path to the volume is reestablished.

    We're wondering if there is a way to generate an alert that tells us the volume is available again.

  • Hi,

     

    Based on my research, this monitor is based on the Cluster Shared Volume related Events:

     

    Event Log Rules

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd491018.aspx

     

    Please also see the Events listed:

     

    Cluster Shared Volume Functionality

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee830309(WS.10).aspx

     

    However, I could not find the Events means thecluster shared volume is available again”; therefore, I suspect this cannot be monitored based on Event Log.  

     

    In addition, I just noticed the status of a cluster shared volume can be queried by PowerShell script. Hope this can give you some hints:

     

    Get-ClusterSharedVolume

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee460981.aspx

     

    Thanks.

  • Thanks for the good information Nicolas. I think I can work with the Powershell commandlet to perhaps schedule a periodic check on the cluster volumes.
