how to "traceroute" the intercluster network?

FelixZhou

couldn't figure out a way to use "traceroute" to test intercluster network. we set up cluster peering and tested snapmirror. Now we want to make sure the snapmirror network routing correctly between two clusters. is there any other way to test it out?

thanks advance !

network traceroute -lif SOURCE_INTERCLUSTER_LIF -vserver CLUSTER_VSERVER -destination DESTINATION_INTERCLUSTER_LIF

network traceroute -lif SOURCE_INTERCLUSTER_LIF -vserver CLUSTER_VSERVER -destination DESTINATION_INTERCLUSTER_LIF

I ran this command, but always receive "command failed: entry doesn't exist" tried different options for CLUSTER_VSERVer, gave ether node name or different vservers, no lucky.

Can someone try out and give me more details?

thanks

I don't have a second cluster in my lab but, here's one traceroute to the other lif.  

 

WOPR::> network traceroute -vserver WOPR -lif SnapmirrorN1 -destination 192.168.1.226
traceroute to 192.168.1.226 (192.168.1.226) from 192.168.1.225, 64 hops max, 40 byte packets
1 192.168.1.226 (192.168.1.226) 0.582 ms 0.138 ms 0.127 ms

I believe you are using the wrong names for lif/vserver/etc...

 

try to use tab key to auto-complete and get ir right...
