FAS and V-Series Storage Systems Discussions

CLUS LIFs Sharing same port

ngregory

I just got to a new customer and this is something I found early on...  in short, clus1, clus3 and clus4 all show as being homed on e0a for the same node.  I see this for other systems where clus1 and clus2 may be the only cluster ports (FAS62xx) and both show homed on e0c, for example.

Any ideas as to why this might be?

I'm curious as to how the FAS62xx ended up with four cluster LIFs in the first place. Best practices only require 2 cluster ports and LIFs.

 

Regardless, if you really only have 2 cluster ports e0a and e0b, just delete the 2 extra LIFs. Make sure you end up with a cluster LIF home-ported on each port.

More info... from ASUP for node1, ifconfig -a section:
