Issue Description
What are the conditions that trigger a VTL cluster failover?

Solution
Products and versions:

VTL6000 V100R003

On the command-line interface (CLI), run the sms -v command to query the VTL cluster status. Any change to the status (bold text) in the command output can trigger a failover.

[root@HA-VTL-01]# sms -v

Usage: sms {force|nas|nasc|fm|sm|bmr|bmrreset|setroot (sm/fm)|clearreboot(sm/fm)} {value}
        bmr - to set the BMR health status
        bmrreset - to reset BMR value
        nas - to reset the NAS failure status
        nasc - to set nas health check
        force - enable force up fm - to set ipstorfm debug level
        sm - to set ipstorsm debug level
