Re: Data Lif is not pinging with new configuration.


I have no clue.. what you intend to explain in the post..

but even after reading twice... its as clear as mud to me..


Here is some pointers for you to check...


1, Make sure your /26 network have a gateway

2, Your default GW "" dosen't belong in the same /26 VLAN you spacify 

    there for you need to specify GW for each subnet, if that subnet need to be reachable from other network.


If you can post the output of following command, might help to get some clarity.

Re: Data Lif is not pinging with new configuration.


You have to make sure the home port for the new LIF is on the newly-created VLAN interface (a0a-1501). If you are sure that this is correct, the only thing left is that it is a switch config issue. Maybe the VLAN is not correctly tagged on the ports on your switch. Or on the trunk between the switches. You should ask your networking guys



Re: Data Lif is not pinging with new configuration.




Thanks for your response.


issue has been resolved. i had configured two network interface lif on same node in vlan a0a-1501. This is features of data ontap that we can configure multipule lif in physical port or interface group. But i am not sure whty this not working when i had configured two lif in a0a-1501 in one node.


i had remove the one lif configuration and modified to another node after lif starting to ping.
