ONTAP Select : Cannot create

 

Hello,

 

With ONTAP Select Deploy 2.3 and 2.4, I got an error when creating a Cluster. The node cannot be created with the following error.

I tried with Web GUI and CLI.

 

How to solve this issue ?

 

 

ONTAP Select deploy Event :

 

ClusterNodeCreateFailed: One of the node create operations failed during cluster "CLU_TEST" create.

NodeCreateFailed: Node "CLU_TEST-node1" create failed: Cannot create VM 'CLU_TEST-node1' (errType=InvalidRequest).

Re: ONTAP Select : Cannot create

Is it a standard or distributed vSwitch configured at ESXi level? If distributed, then there is a bug which prevents the deployment and fails at this same level. The workaround is to create a dummy VLAN port group in the standard vSwitch without any nics or any other port groups, and then try the deployment.

 

If standard then perhaps there is some issue which needs to be reviewed.

Re: ONTAP Select : Cannot create

Hello,

 

It was a distributed vSwitch. I change my environment to have supported hardware server. On the new ESX server with standard vSwitch I can create the cluster and deploy the node.

 

Thank you for yout answer and let me know about this bug I will probably have in my customer environment.

Re: ONTAP Select : Cannot create

As I understand from NetApp, this bug will be fixed in later releases. In the meantime, as I mentioned you can use the workaround to have the cluster created with a distributed vswitch.

 

Create a dummy test portgroup in the standard vswitch; that should be the only portgroup for the standard vswitch; nothing else. Then you can as usual create your distributed vswitch with nics and port groups and create the cluster. It should work. Post the cluster is created, you can delete the dummy test portgroup from the standard vswitch.
