LOG_ALERT email for non-reudundant node management LIF - why?

I'm getting LOG_ALERT emails from a dual-node FAS-2552 system nagging me about a non-redundandt port, but that port is the node management LIF for node 02 which (as I understand it) is not intended to be failed over. Curiously, I never get these about node 01.

 

Is there an actual problem that I need to fix? Or is there a way to just make the alert go away?

Re: LOG_ALERT email for non-reudundant node management LIF - why?

Actually, the node management LIF can fail over - but it's restricted to other ports on the same node. (failover policy = local-only).

 

You might want to look at your "Default Network" failover group's membership to see why node2 is unhappy but node1 is OK.

 

If you truly do not want the node-mgmt LIF to fail over to another port other than e0M, you can set the failover policy of the node-mgmt LIF to "disabled" (a tip from @Overz)

::> network interface modify -vserver svm_name -lif lif_name -failover-policy disabled
