I have a 4-node cluster with two lifs in the cluster vserver on each node - an intercluster lif and a node mgmt lif. When running a network ping, with the -node specified, the traffic flows over the node mgmt lif on nodes 3 & 4. Works as expected. On nodes 1 & 2 the traffic flows over the intercluster lifs - problem. Using the -vserver and -lif on the ping works on all 4 nodes.
The default gateway is specified on the node-mgmt lif. The intercluster lif has no routing tables. So why would a ping, to a network that has no entries in the node routing tables (node run node xxx netstat -r), flow over an interface with no routing information?????
How does one change which lif to use when using the -node parameter.
