Gateway not configured for management interface of Storage Virtual Machine?

netappmagic

I am receiving a warning message in "Active IQ", shown as attached, and only on one of 4 nodes in the cluster

 

What should be the right management LIF and it's GW for SVM's and look missed here?


I already have a "admin" LIF created for each SVM, and with the role type of "data". Dont know what other role types should I have here? Also, there is already a gateway configured for this LIF as shown in "route show..".

Show us the output of route show. Maybe something is wrong. You could always mask out the first two octets

Again, it is complaining about only one node among 4 nodes.  My understanding, there is no so called management LIF for a SVM, only node has management role.

Ok....back at a PC now and I can read your image.

That is actaully complaining about (looks like 😎 SVMs not having a default gateway.

It is a best practice for each SVM to have at a minimum of a mgmt LIF for connections.

This LIF would have a default gateway defined. This way, you NFS/CIFS/iSCSI data can stay unrouted and work just fine.

This LIF does not need any data protocols (-data-protocol none) and has a firewall policy of mgmt.

I guess my question should be:

What such LIF should look like or how should such LIF be created?

Because I already have a LIF with mgmt firewall policy for each SVM, and with such gateway: 

0.0.0.0/0 10.192.82.1, as shown in my previous output. Was this gateway defined incorrectly?

netappmagic

Can some experts please pin-point the issue here? it looks I already have the default gateway for the mgmt LIF's of all SVM's. Please check "route show" outputs (.18.x is the mgmt network).
