VLAN misconiguration detection

NetApp,

 

Would it be possible to put in VLAN misconfiguration detection into ONTAP?  We manage a lot of filers and we often find misconfiguration issues with VLANs on the switch side, so having some kind of detection would be great.

 

VMware has this capability in the virtual distributed switches to do this.  It sends some kind of vlan tagged request and if it doesn't get a return, then it sends out an alarm.
