Subject Re: Stop one of primary storage but no vm diskimg in it , All vm stoped.

It sounds like you are running on KVM, is that correct?

It also sounds like putting the storage in maintenance mode from CloudStack does not cause
any issues, but stopping the NFS service does cause issues. Is that correct, as well?

Is it possible the hosts in your compute cluster are putting a heartbeat file on the primary
storage whose NFS service you stopped?

    when change the C storage to maintance , group normally ,no exception occured.
    when stop the NFS on C storage , all vm stoped and  some hypervisors   rebooted  by cloudstack-agent.
    In C storage ,only one file that for VMC1, there aren’t disk image for other vms , so
it stoped all vms to be beyond comprehension.

will be restarted as soon as practical when the primary storage comes back on line. With NFS,
the hypervisor may allow the virtual machines to continue running depending on the nature
of the issue. For example, an NFS hang will cause the guest VMs to be suspended until storage
connectivity is restored.Primary storage is not designed to be backed up. Individual volumes
in primary storage can be backed up using snapshots.
