ontap 8.3 lif cannot ping gateway

Hi all,

 

I have c-mode cluster with 1 node (DR filer).  It's on subnet 172.16.230.0/24. Gateway is 172.16.230.1/24

I created an intercluster LIF (172.16.230.35)  to comm. with filer (production ) in another subnet. (10.1.198.0/24).

I can ping 10.1.198.35. But I cannot ping the gateway 172.16.230.1 from the intercluster LIF on the DR-filer.

I can also not ping from 10.1.198.35 (prod. filer) to 172.16.230.35 (dr filer)

 

If I connect a laptop in the same subnet and give it 172.16.230.18, I can ping both ways. Thus, ping to 10.1.198.35, 172.16.230.1 and vice versa.  Just as expected. 

So routing seems correct.

 

BUT, if i ping from the laptop to the LIF (172.16.230.35) of the filer,  I have no response, altough it's on the same subnet.

 

So it looks like 'something' is preventing the LIF on the Dr-filer to respond to the ping(?) 

 

I spend hours of searching the internet but I'm completly lost now. If somebody could give me only a direction to search in, it would be great!

 

Thanks!
