Controller degraded to preserve offline volume data

A volume with write caching enabled was placed offline because the volume's associated disk pool or volume group is missing drives. The volume's preferred controller is being held in a degraded state to preserve the data in write cache.

Important: The storage array may report a Volume Not on Preferred Path problem as a result of this issue.
CAUTION:
Risk of data loss

Do not remove or replace either of the storage array's controllers until this issue has been resolved. Removing or replacing either of the storage array's controllers may result in the loss of cached data.
