Severity

ERROR

Description

This message occurs in MetroCluster(tm) configurations on clustered Data ONTAP® systems, when Data ONTAP cannot replicate an FC logical interface (LIF) to a candidate port in the destination cluster. A candidate port is one that satisfies the following conditions: 1) It must reside on the disaster recovery (DR) partner node. 2) It must be connected to the same FC fabric as the home port of the primary Vserver FC LIF.

Corrective Action

Check the cabling to ensure that ports on the destination cluster node (DR partner) are connected to the same fabric as the source cluster port hosting the primary Vserver FC LIF. Use "fcp adapter show -fields fabric-name" command to view the port-fabric connectivity information. After ensuring proper fabric connectivity, run "metrocluster check lif repair-placement" command on the source cluster with the Vserver name and LIF name as inputs to perform lif placement followed by "metrocluster check lif show" to verify the results of the command.

Syslog Message

There are no ports on node "%s" connected to fabric "%s" in the destination cluster. Cannot place FC LIF "%s" hosted on the source cluster port %s of %s adapter type for Vserver "%s".

Parameters

node (STRING): Name of the destination cluster node (DR partner) that does not have a port connected to the fabric.
fabric_name (STRING): Name of the fabric that the source cluster port hosting the primary Vserver FC LIF is connected to.
lif (STRING): Name of the FC LIF to be placed.
port (STRING): Source cluster port that hosts the primary Vserver FC LIF.
adapter_type (STRING): Adapter type of the source cluster port that hosts the primary Vserver FC LIF.
vserver (STRING): Name of the secondary Vserver in the MetroCluster relationship.

Severity

ERROR

Description

This message occurs in MetroCluster(tm) configurations on clustered Data ONTAP® systems, when the source cluster FC port that is hosting an FC LIF of the primary Vserver is not connected to any fabric. The LIF cannot be placed correctly at the destination cluster because fabric information is not available.

Corrective Action

Check the wiring of the source cluster FC port to ensure that it is connected to the fabric. Use the "fcp adapter show -fields fabric-name" command to view the port-fabric connectivity information. After ensuring proper fabric connectivity, enter the "metrocluster check lif repair-placement -vserver <vserver_name> -lif <lif_name>" command in the source cluster to intiate the LIF placement at the secondary cluster. After LIF placement has been completed, enter the "metrocluster check lif show -vserver <vserver_name> -lif <lif_name>" to see whether lif placement succeeded or not.

Syslog Message

The source cluster FC port %s that is hosting FC LIF %s on primary Vserver %s is not connected to any fabric.

Parameters

home_port (STRING): Name of the source cluster FC port.
lif (STRING): Name of the FC LIF.
vserver (STRING): Name of the primary Vserver.
