Network Interfaces MAC address problem

Nasz

Hi Guys,

 

I need some help, because maybe I have a problem. So we have 2 FAS2040 storage systems, and we configured 3 phisical network interfaces (e0b, e0c, e0d) into a VIF. Couple a day ago we had some network problem, and we recognized that the all network interfaces (e0a, e0b, e0c, e0d) have a same mac address (not only the VIF's members). I think is not a normal operation (perhaps I'm wrong).

So how to resolve or repair this problem? I attached the ifconfig all result:

 

filer2> ifconfig -a
e0a: flags=0x1f4c867<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,TCPCKSUM> mtu 1500
        inet 172.30.30.35 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 172.30.30.255
        partner e0a (not in use)
        ether 00:a0:98:58:f4:33 (auto-1000t-fd-up) flowcontrol full
e0b: flags=0x9f4c867<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,TCPCKSUM> mtu 1500

The MAC address on e0a is:

ether 00:a0:98:58:f4:33

The MAC address of the interface group members is:

ether 02:a0:98:58:f4:33

The 02 in the first octect indicates its a vif/ifgrp.  The first mac on the system, in this case the one for e0a, is used as a base.
