Network Mismatch on two controllers/filers

Hi guys ,

 

NetApp Release 8.1.1P1 7-Mode

FAS2240-4

on NPD01

36 disks BSAS drives

 

I keep getting network errors and we seem to have IO issues on these filers. Does anyone know how to fix this and what steps I need to take?

Here is the error below.

 

Following is the content of /etc/rc file-

Re: Network Mismatch on two controllers/filers

When you say network errors, what do you mean?

 

Run ifstat -a and look at the XON / XOFF

I notice a mismatch in the MTU between the two ifgrps on filer A and filer B ...

all show zero

Re: Network Mismatch on two controllers/filers

yes we had this setup to deal with latency issues between filer and VMware servers. we will probably change this back since it didnt make a difference.

Using Jumbo frames is Best Practice in many environs.

Params should match end to end.

 

I was noting that there was a mismatch in the configuration between the two controllers and ifgrps.

This was likely the origin of the error message you were seeing.

 I see what your saying. Does it matter that I have one Filer that is strickly for NFS shares and the other volume with the 9000 mtu has only One ISCI volume?
