I have a FAS 3240 being initialized. I have created two vifs on head one and two using the onboard e0a and e0b on each controller. I have configured two vlans on each controller vif and set them up to be partners to each other. The problem I am having is that when I do a manual takeover, the vlan interfaces from the failed controller are not reachable after the takeover. I can ping the partner addresses on the controller taking over but I cant from any clients on the network. Can anyone explain this behavior? This is an initial setup.
I cant imagine this is the case since each controller is connected using 2 uplink ports in a LACP trunk on e0a and e0b and it passes traffic (two vlans) until it is failed over. Im really not sure what to think of this. Ive had 4 Netapp level one guys tell me my RC config looks fine. Maybe this a default route issue. I have e0M on a seperate subnet as the e0A and e0B interfaces. Any thoughts?
Rc looks good to me too. I did run into an issue at a customer where they didn't allow more than one mac address per port and that restriction caused an issue. May not be the case here but worth checking.
Ill have to give this a try tomorrow morning, its just frustrating when nothing seems out of place. We have used two switches so far and they both have had the same problem. The default route is the network that one of the vlan interfaces is on so Im not sure why during failover at least one would not work. Im stumped at this point.
