Misconfigured Broadcast Domain

Hi all,

 

I am faced with a problem that seems simple but I can not solve.

 

  • Version NetApp 9.8p5
  • 4 Node (2 node AFF  + 2 node FAS)

Event logs report this error continuously:

vifmgr.reach.miscfg: Network port e0M on node cluster-3   cannot reach its expected broadcast domain Default:mgmt.

vifmgr.reach.miscfg: Network port e0M on node cluster-4   cannot reach its expected broadcast domain Default:mgmt.

 

 

network port reachability show:

cluster-1 (AFF):

e0M      Default:mgmt                         multi-domain-reachability

e0c      Default:mgmt                         multi-domain-reachability (NOT USED)

 

cluster-2 (AFF):

e0M      Default:mgmt                         multi-domain-reachability

e0c      Default:mgmt                         multi-domain-reachability (NOT USED)

 

cluster-3 (FAS):

e0M      Default:mgmt                         multi-domain-reachability

e0c      Default:BD_notused              no-reachability (NOT USED)

 

cluster-4 (FAS):

e0M      Default:mgmt                         multi-domain-reachability

e0c      Default:BD_notused              no-reachability (NOT USED)

 

 

Network port reachability show -node  cluster-3 (detail) :

e0M      Default:mgmt                 misconfigured-reachability

Actual Reachability: Default:BD_A244

Unreachable Ports: cluster-4:e0M, cluster-2:e0M,

                                         cluster-2:e0c, cluster-1:e0M, cluster-1:e0c

 

 

Network portreachability show -node  cluster-4 (detail):

 e0M      Default:mgmt                 misconfigured-reachability

Actual Reachability: Default:BD_A244

Unreachable Ports: cluster-3:e0M, cluster-2:e0M,

                      cluster-2:e0c, cluster-1:e0M, cluster-1:e0c

 

I tried ping from nodes 3 and 4 to nodes 1 and 2 ...all nodes work correctly via e0M port.

I don’t have connectivity problems but I can’t delete this message.

 

Do you have any suggestions on how to resolve ?

 

Thanks !!!!!

What does broadcast-domain show look like?

 How about net port show?

 

i typically see this when I have mgmt ports (like e0M) connected to a switch as an access port but also have other ports like either an ifgrp or another high speed port connected to a switch as a trunk port with VLAN tagging and there is a vlan being used that is also the same as the access port of the mgmt port.

Hi TMAC_CTG , 

 

thanks !

 

These are the output :

 

network port show:

broadcast-domain show (ports e0c and e0M)

cluster-s1::> broadcast-domain show

cluster-3:e0M complete

cluster-1:e0c complete

 

The management ports have been set only on the respective e0M.

The e0C port has been inserted in the BD of mgmt but is not used and is without IP. While in nodes 3 and 4 it has not even been inserted in the BD of mgmt.

Ok, you need to figure out what you want to do here. All the e0M ports should be in the same VLAN/Broadcast-domain and configured as ACCESS ports on the switch.

 

What is the purpose of e0c? If you are using it as MGMT, then plug in to switches, make sure they are access ports and on the same VLAN as e0M. If you do not plan to use them, remove the physical connections.

 

If you try to create any tagged VLAN (like 244 in your case), the tagged VLAN should NOT be the same as the ACCESS VLAN for e0M otherwise the reachability will be confused. I suspect that is your case.

 

MGMT and data should be different VLANs.

e0M should be a dedidcated MGMT VLAN and everything else should be tagged VLANs that are NOT MGMT.
