P4300 cluster - Failover manager status on 'x.y.z.t' = 'Down'. CRITICAL (E00050100)

P4300 cluster - Failover manager status on 'x.y.z.t' = 'Down'. CRITICAL (E00050100)

I received the following message from a P4300 cluster.

The problem (if any) happened on Sunday morning, but now either the cluster and the FOM look to be up and running.

The "Resolution" line points to a page that does not exist...

What is the meaning of the message?

What can I do in order to eliminate the problem, if any?

Should I suspect any different kind of problem?

according to the mail, the failover manager was unavailable at about 5:05. Since then the fom seems to have reconnected to the cluster, therefore the problem has resolved itself. I recently discovered that a failover manager running as a Hyper-V guest can become unavailable for a short time when the Hyper-V host is backed up with Windows Server Backup, probably due to the vss snapshot taken before the backup. Could be something similar in your environment. You may want to check the host system the fom resides on for any activities or events around the downtime.

We have the same issue, when the backup software connects to take a backup using VSS there seems to be some downtime and we recieve also this event.


Any ideas?
