Hi @sfrmast 

 

Basically the related LIF is not configured to failover as per best practice. You can familiarize yourself with how ONTAP handles network interface failover policies by checking out this KB article - https://kb.netapp.com/Advice_and_Troubleshooting/Data_Storage_Software/ONTAP_OS/Network_interface_failover_policies_-_behavior_and_uses 

 

You can also check out this article on how to configure the failover group correctly, https://kb.netapp.com/Advice_and_Troubleshooting/Data_Storage_Software/ONTAP_OS/How_to_configure_failover_group_and_targets_via_split_broadcast_domain... 

 

Hope this helps.

hi@sfrmast 

you will need to use "network interface modify" to Configure the cluster LIF accordingly to that error message, see https://docs.netapp.com/ontap-9/topic/com.netapp.doc.dot-cm-cmpr-950/network__interface__modify.html
