Hello All,


Thank you for your time whilst reading this...


We have failed over a CIF share from 1 node to the other node, but eventhough on the HNAS it is mounted and ready for read/writes , the users are experiencing a wait of up to 5 mins whilst the CIF gets re registered in the DNS arena and their drives become accesable ..


It was suggested that we use use Dynamic DNS for ease of use and admin, but it looks more likely that we will have to go to Static DNS and do more admin..


Has anyone else experienced this delay in re registering CIF's after a swap to another node ???



We are using Dynamic DNS settings.


HNAS 4060 cluster of 2 nodes


Running version 12.0.3528.01


Thank you for your time
