san.novlanport events






This message occurs when a clustered Data ONTAP® system is in a MetroCluster™ configuration. The system cannot find a VLAN port on the destination cluster node (that is, the DR partner) to host an iSCSI LIF, and has instead chosen to place the LIF on a physical port.

Corrective Action

Ensure that the destination cluster node (DR partner) has ports connected to the same VLANs as in the source with the command "network port show -node <node> -fields vlan-tag". Ensure that the DR partner has VLAN interfaces similar to those in the source with the command "network port show -node <node> -fields type". If necessary, create VLAN interface(s) on the DR partner node using the "network port vlan create" command. After ensuring that the proper VLAN port exists, run the "metrocluster check lif repair-placement" command on the source cluster, with the Vserver name and LIF name as inputs to perform LIF placement. Then verify the results with the command "metrocluster check lif show".

Syslog Message
