Networking issue for Ontap 8.3 Cluster - NDMP Backup

I am having difficulty with our office's Ontap 8.3 Clustered Netapp. We also have a clustered Ontap 8.2 that is working fine. I am attempting to do NDMP backup requests to the SVM vserver in both scenarios. 

 

In the working Ontap 8.2 when making hte backup request i see that the data connection goes to the LIF of the SVM an external IP of 10.x.x.x. However when doing the Ontap 8.3 NDMP backup I get an "Unable to establish data connection to address 169.254.x.x." which is the netapp internal network IP for one of the intercluster connections. 

 

I think some sort of networking settings are incorrect is there something I can provide here to help debug the issue? Thanks os much in advance.

Are you connecting to the data or management LIF? Ontap 8.3 requires that each vserver have a management LIF.

Hi,

 

In addition to ensuring the vserver is assigned a management LIF, I'd also recommend checking the NDMP configuration is scoped to the vserver. See the following KB

Also see the additional links in the above KB. hope that helps.
