Network Configuration Mismatch


I did some searching on here, but nothing seems to solve my problem.


We have a FAS2050 with 2 interfaces, e0a, and e0b. We recently did a physical move of the array from an old office to new and e0a was setup on the old network, and e0b was setup for the new (that way we didn't need anyone on site to configure the box and we could do things remotely)


I'm getting the Network configuration mismatch error. 


My RC file is:

#Auto-generated by setup Sat Jun 25 11:39:17 MST 2011
hostname USPHX1FP003
ifconfig e0b `hostname`-e0b mediatype auto flowcontrol full netmask
route add default 1
routed on
options dns.domainname na.aecomnet.com
options dns.enable on
options nis.enable off
options timed.enable off
options timed.enable on


My Hosts file:

#Auto-generated by setup Sat Jun 25 11:39:17 MST 2011 localhost USPHX1FP003 USPHX1FP003-e0b mailhost


ifconfig -a

USPHX1FP003> ifconfig -a

I have disabled e0a now since that network is no longer needed.


Any thoughts?



Not to throw salt in your wound here, but a 2050 is so old, it's time to get management to upgrade.


Unless I missed it, where did you say you are getting network mismatch?


can you paste some of the messages file


I know it's old. It's on the roadmap to be decomm'd eventually, but not yet. I figured I would try to figure this out to continue growing knowledge of how NetApp works.


Here is the screenshot from OnCommand System Manager regarding the Mismatch.



Delete address from e0a (ifconfig e0a or simply ignore it.
