Issue

  • The metrocluster check show command runs and displays a warning status for LIFs:

cluster::> metrocluster check show

Last Checked On: dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss

Component           Result
------------------- ---------
nodes               ok
lifs                warning
config-replication  ok
aggregates          ok
clusters            ok
5 entries were displayed.


cluster::> metrocluster check lif show
Vserver         LIF             Protocol    Failure
--------------  --------------  ---------   ----------  ---------------
vserver_name      Lif_name      none        Discovery of LIF with address <IP_Address> failed from destination cluster
vserver_name      Lif_name      none        Discovery of LIF with address <IP_Address> failed from destination cluster

  • Network interface show will show that the LIF has been placed; however, this has been performed on a 1:1 name basis, which might not be suitable:

ClusterA::> network interface show
  (network interface show)
            Logical    Status     Network            Current       Current Is
Vserver     Interface  Admin/Oper Address/Mask       Node          Port    Home
----------- ---------- ---------- ------------------ ------------- ------- ----
vserver
            lif1         up/up    10.10.100.11/24    ClusterA-01      e0c     true

ClusterB::> network interface show
  (network interface show)
            Logical    Status     Network            Current       Current Is
Vserver     Interface  Admin/Oper Address/Mask       Node          Port    Home
----------- ---------- ---------- ------------------ ------------- ------- ----
vserver-mc
            lif1         up/down  10.10.100.11/24    ClusterB-02      e0c     true
