cluster peer rpc timeout

Create cluster peer fails with RPC error timeout.    


I have 2 clusters that I need to peer ,  the peering fails with  An introductory RPC to the peer address "addr" failed to connect: RPC: Remove System Error - operation timed out.  verify the address is correct and try again. 



The firewalls between the 2 sites appear to be allowing the traffic .  and routing seems to be correct as well.   I get the same error from both sides.

Please check if the cluster peering requirements are met. Refer https://library.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_download_file/ECMP1610205 page 62

You can try using dedicated intercluster ports: https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMP1636068/html/GUID-415B212C-9F9B-4638-8036-A14A463BDAFC.html

Re: cluster peer rpc timeout

All of the requirements have been met.  I learned this morning that the vlan wasn't working on these nodes on e0b which is where I had the lifs homed.   Thank you for the response and I was able to get peering working now just need to get the network team to figure out the vlan issue.
