VSCAN routing question

 

Hi,

 

Can somebody explain how the vscan routing works ? How the Lif Used for connection is chosen ?

For some reason the 10.160.128.142 AV server is using wrong public lif to connect to the second SVM.

 

 

vscan connection-status show-connected -instance

 

Node: XXX-np01-02
Vserver: XXX-sp170001
Server: 10.160.128.142
Vscan Server Vendor: mcafee virusscan enterprise for storage
Vscan Server Version: 0.0
Privileged User Used for Connection: EUNET\XXX
Time When Vscan Server Was Connected: 8/23/2017 09:31:28
Server Type: primary
Vserver LIF Used for Connection: 10.160.128.144 (vscan lif)

 

Node: XXX-np01-02
Vserver: XXX-sp170002

Re: VSCAN routing question

It will grab a data LIF that is CIFS enabled, that can reach the vscan server.  best practice is to create a seperate network from the data access network, just to be used for vscan.

Thanks for the reply.

 

CIFS is enabled on all vscan interfaces.

 

The problem is that it switching on random basis to public lif (e.g. when I do vscan disable/enable).

 

Hence, I would like to understand the mechanism. It seems that it is not using Metric, because with current setting it would always pick public lifs.

Re: VSCAN routing question

[ Edited ]

it wont hit the route table at all, as LIF is in same network.  no need for gateway

 

do you have netmask incorrect?  looks like should be /25

 

post this if you can, curious now.

Re: VSCAN routing question

Hi J_curl,

 

The masks are Ok. Also, both IP ranges are in different VLANs.

Re: VSCAN routing question

very interesting.  Is the subnet mask correct on the vscan server?

Re: VSCAN routing question

does the vscan server have a default route specified for the it's 10.160.128.142 interface?  Is that interface in the same vlan?

 

remove the default routes for vscan network on the NetApp, and also remove the gateway for the .142 interface on the server

Re: VSCAN routing question

The server is in the same vlan as NAS. They can see each other as sometimes it switches to the proper lif and everything works fine.

It has only 1 interface wih the following routing configured. I'm affraid I won't be able to log in to the server anymore, if I remove the default gateway.

Jakub

Re: VSCAN routing question

vscan servers only have the single IP, so no need to change anything there.  Those should be fine as they are

 

I would be curious to see if it works if you delete the route to .129 for the vserver, as well as remove the gateway from the vscan_403 subnet.  i think one of those is causing this.  Just a theory though.

 

you may have to toggle vscan off/on after the change
