unable to communicate with VIF

Hi Team,

I have created a vif by combining two physical interfaces and assigned an IP address to vif but unable to communicate or ping it. please suggest if anything is to be done.

Re: unable to communicate with VIF

First, check connectivity.

Afterwards check: vlan tagging (netapp and switch compliant to each other), did you made the vif using lacp but didn't configured the switch's ports to lacp, is it lacp but to different switches (won't work), subnet, if you type vif status (or ifgrp status, depends on your ONTAP version) do you that the links are up or are the down\broken ?
A lot of reasons may set you back, it needs a closer look
