Error: command failed: Creating broadcast domain "Default" will result in the
creation of failover group "Default" in Vserver "COLO-cluster", but a
failover group with that name already exists. Try the command again with
a different name.

How to solve this?

Your can name your broadcast-domain anything you like to, there is no need to have a "Default" broadcast-domain.

By Default ( in a normal Installation) there will be two broadcast-domain "Cluster and Default". (i recommend renaming it.. to more appropriate name)

 

to fix your situation, you might have to choose a different name then Default (Choose your vlan name)

and add all those same VLAN ports from all nodes to that broadcast-domain.

 

Unless you have very-specific failover policy, broadcase-domain will automatically manage your failover-group.

once you fix your broadcast-domain you can get rid of your existing "Failover-group" 

 

Once you completed the cleanup, you have to check and verify each LIF's failover policy to make sure they have the appropriate failover-group

and those failover-groups include the correct ports.

 

Yes, it could be confusing.. but once you get the idea.. its really simple.

 

let me know, if you need further help.
