Broadcast Domains missing after Upgrade from 8.2.x to 8.3.x


Hello Community, 


we observed during Upgrade from 8.2.x to 9.0 that during the steps from 8.2.x to 8.3.x the broadcast domains have not been created and the upgrade-revert check shows the upgrade as completed but with errors. 


After manually fixing the broadcast domains for the Default IP Space we figured out that we are not able to create the Cluster Broadcast Domain.

Getting error "The IPSpace Cluster can not have more than one Broadcast Domain".

However, with Broadcast-domain show, we can not see a broadcast domain. --> something hidden.


NetApp Support says, we have to go back to 8.3 and fix the problem there but this requires Downtime.


My question is:

  • Does someone else faced this problem before and how did you fix it?
  • Is there any other way to create the Broadcast Domain for the cluster ports?
  • Would it help to run the cluster setup again?

cheers Frank
