while I'm connected to the filer, I see the following messages:
Wed Mar 7 10:20:28 CET [openssh.versionExchange.Fail:Error]: Did not receive identification string from [IP_ADDRESS].
Wed Mar 7 10:20:30 CET [openssh.dispatch.protocol:warning]: SSH dispatch failed from address [IP_ADDRESS], type 1, packet 5.
Does anyone know what this means and how to fix it?
Thank you in advance,

It looks like something is trying to login using SSH that is not sending proper information. Searching on "openssh.versionExchange.Fail:Error" provides a lot of software patches for devices monitored by SSH calls.
I don't suppose you are using a product called LogicMonitor?
This site refers to their product simply checking/monitoring SSH status, so it generates bogus SSH calls, just to get a reply. Maybe you have a monitoring system that does the same thing?

For anyone else that runs into this here is one possible solution: http://www.unixwitch.de/de/sysadmin/tools/netapp
Just disable the ServerAliveInterval on your ssh client for each of your filers since the filers don't seem to support it.
Do this by editing your .ssh/config in the client

Changing the ServerAliveInterval was exactly the fix for the problem I was running into, but my warnings were a little different from the original poster:
Wed Jul 31 15:06:38 PDT [filername:openssh.dispatch.protocol:warning]: SSH dispatch failed from address [IP address], type 80, packet 191.
I log into a system that cuts off sessions after a short amount of time, so I had ServerAliveInterval set to 5 minutes on my Mac. Unfortunately, this caused the NetApp to throw a warning on the console every 5 minutes when I was logged in. I increased the interval and the console is *much* cleaner now. Thanks!
