  • 7. Common Failures tested Failure Description Response at high stress levels Represents Port Failure— 1 or 2 or 3 or Single Link Failure nodes Should Continue to 4 (Public Interface) Work 1 and 2 or All Links Failure Nodes Should Continue to 3 and 4 (Public Interface) Work via Failover Represents Port Failure — 5 or 6 or 7 or Single Link (Private Nodes Should Continue 8 Interconnect) to Work 5 and 6 or 7 All Links (Private Nodes Should Continue to and 8 Interconnect) Work via Failover 1 IO Path Lost—No Effect, Storage Path 9 All IO Paths— Nodes Failure Should Reboot© 2010 Cisco and/or its affiliates.
