Notification of Repository Disk Failure

When the SAN cable is pulled for backup node, repository disk failure event is notified. When administrator does a manual planned RG move, RG moves to standby and fails because SAN cable is out and data is not accessible. It seems like Apple would like PowerHA to do checks before the RG move to warn the administrator about storage issues on standby

Customer would like hacmp to do a health check of the repository disk on the other node before offering the customer the option of doing an RG move to that node.
