Networking issue for Ontap 8.3 Cluster - NDMP Backup

avamaruser

I am having difficulty with our office's Ontap 8.3 Clustered Netapp. We also have a clustered Ontap 8.2 that is working fine. I am attempting to do NDMP backup requests to the SVM vserver in both scenarios. 

 

In the working Ontap 8.2 when making hte backup request i see that the data connection goes to the LIF of the SVM an external IP of 10.x.x.x. However when doing the Ontap 8.3 NDMP backup I get an "Unable to establish data connection to address 169.254.x.x." which is the netapp internal network IP for one of the intercluster connections. 

 

I think some sort of networking settings are incorrect is there something I can provide here to help debug the issue? Thanks os much in advance.

Hi,

 

In addition to ensuring the vserver is assigned a management LIF, I'd also recommend checking the NDMP configuration is scoped to the vserver. See the following KB

Also see the additional links in the above KB. hope that helps.

Are you connecting to the data or management LIF? Ontap 8.3 requires that each vserver have a management LIF.
