How to change the system ownership_policy

Overview

Elastifile best practices recommends to set the ownership_policy property to either 'local_node' or 'round_robin'.

The not recommended value is 'local_core' which might impact the cluster performance.

 

Check the current value

1. SSH to the Elastifile Management Server

2. Run the following commands:

sudo su -
. elfs_admin
elfs-cli system show --id 1 | grep ownership_policy
ownership_policy:                        local_core

 

Set the ownership_policy value

1. SSH to the Elastifile Management Server

2. Run the following commands:

sudo su -
. elfs_admin
elfs-cli system update --ownership_policy round_robin --id 1
If the above command does not work, you must upgrade your Elastifile system version

 

Validate the ownership_policy value

1. SSH to the Elastifile Management Server

2. Run the following commands:

sudo su -
. elfs_admin
elfs-cli system show --id 1 | grep ownership_policy
ownership_policy:                        round_robin
