Resource failover access

I am testing access to a cluster enabled volume and had a couple questions.
For a test I started to copy up a huge directory to the volume from XP,
client 4.91. Part way through the copy I migrated the volume to a
different node. The copy fails while the volume is migrating, after a few
seconds I am then able to access the resource. Is this normal, or is it a
configuration option on the client (timeout maybe) to make this so the user
never sees a failure.

Thanks

Re: Resource failover access

Yes this is normal, if you had just switched off the original host
node, or pulled the Ethernet cable, the node would fail over much
faster (as a real world problem would) and then the copy retry would
kick in and continue, the problem with the migration is that it takes
too long and the client times out.
