vifmgr.cluscheck.hwerrors

Severity

ALERT

Description

This message occurs when a network device reports a high number of observed hardware errors, such as CRC errors, length errors, alignment errors, or dropped frames.

Corrective Action

The errors could be originating from the specified port, a remote port, or a port on another component of the network. Check the statistics for both the port and the switch. Contact NetApp technical support for assistance and specific instructions.

Syslog Message

Port %s on node %s is reporting a high number (at least 1 per %d packets) of observed hardware errors (CRC, length, alignment, dropped).

Description

This message occurs when the l2ping test fails. This test verifies L2 reachability between cluster ports. This condition typically results in loss of communication between the two nodes.

Corrective Action

Verify that the cable is plugged in properly to both the NIC and the switch, and that the switch is powered on. If these conditions are met and the cluster link remains down, contact NetApp technical support to investigate further.

vifmgr.cluscheck.notassigned

Severity

ALERT

Description

This message occurs when the named cluster logical interface (LIF) is not assigned to any network port.

Corrective Action

Verify that the LIF’s current port is configured administratively "up". Use the "network interface show" command to determine the current port of the LIF. Use the "network port show -fields up-admin" command to show the port’s administrative state. Ensure that the network cabling connecting the remote network port is in place and secure. Ensure that the remote network port is configured administratively "up". If the port’s link state is "up", attempt to migrate the cluster LIF to another cluster port. Use the "network port show" command to view the port’s link state. If the current port is "up", use the "network interface migrate" command to migrate the LIF to another port.

Syslog Message

Cluster LIF %s (node %s) is not assigned to any port.

Parameters

lif_name (STRING): Name of the cluster LIF.
node_name (STRING): Name of the node on which the cluster LIF resides.
