Issue

  • When determining metrocluster status, LIF warnings are observed:

::> metrocluster check run
::> 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

  • Further analysis indicates fabric name related issue:

::> metrocluster check lif show
Vserver         LIF        Protocol    Failure
--------------  ---------  ---------   ----------  ---------------
Vserver1                       FCP01      fcp         There are no ports on node "Node1" connected to fabric "xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx" in the destination cluster. Cannot place FC LIF "FCP01" hosted on the source cluster port "0e" of "CNA" adapter type for Vserver "Vserver1-mc".
Vserver1                       FCP02      fcp         There are no ports on node "Node1" connected to fabric "xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx" in the destination cluster. Cannot place FC LIF "FCP02" hosted on the source cluster port "0h" of "CNA" adapter type for Vserver "Vserver-mc".

Vserver2                       FCP03    fcp                   No ports found on MetroCluster DR node "Node2" connected to fabric with fabric name "xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx"
Vserver2                       FCP04    fcp                   No ports found on MetroCluster DR node "Node2" connected to fabric with fabric name "xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
