How do I verify if my data lifs are reachable by a set of hosts (I obviously can ask the server folks to ping the data lif and check). Is there any other way I myself can identify if the server can see my lif's?
Lets say I'm new member of the team and I have the unix folks asking for NFS storage. I know that my storage network is limited (not public) to a few vlans. What test or commad(s) can I run to check if the host ip can reach my netapp IPs.
Using CDOT 8.2.3

You can ping the host from the lifs to test that it works one way...and then that will test gateway (if a different subnet) and routing and also dns if you ping by name. You can also ping other data lifs in the cluster and the default gateway.

I can ping the host from the node.
nas01::> net ping -node nas01-ctrl1 -destination 10.21.149.74
10.21.149.74 is alive
I cannot ping the host from the data lif.
nas01::> net ping -lif nas-lif7 -lif-owner nas01-svm2 -destination 10.21.149.74
no answer from 10.21.149.74
What could be the issue here ?

If cDOT 8.2, check the routing-group assigned to the lif "net int show -fields routing-group" then check the routes in that group "net routing-group route show ..."..
If cDOT 8.3, check the routes in the SVM. "net route show"...
likely a default route missing...and 8.2/8.3 changed where routing is applied.
