AutoSupport not working over SMTP - KB 1015614

luiz_silva

Hi friends,

 

I got the following error when a node try to send Autosupport to a SMTP host (FAS8020 - Ontap 9.2.x):

 

error message: FTP: weird server reply

 

Do you have any idea?

 

The only KB that matches the error message is the following:

https://kb.netapp.com/app/answers/answer_view/a_id/1015614/loc/en_US

But It seems has no contents (even logged in with my account). 

Would you guys have complete access to the KB above?

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

I checked, this kB (FTP: weird server reply) isn't viewable to me as well. I think Drew_C is the right person to address the kB content/view issue.

 

Coming to the actual issue:
1) Alex has nicely explained this error in his blog, so I believe most of the KB content is  covered.

2) As you mentioned your Ontap is 9.2: There was a key change in 9.2 and that is: 'IP fastpath' is disabled, therefore 'static' routes comes into play.

3) This thread also covers this issue. (Go straight to the resolution)

Hope it helps.

 

Thanks!
