This command doesnt work from any nodes in one cluster, but works in the other cluster.

Can Experts please advise what LIF's will be used in this command? or what should I look into?

 

Thanks!

I believe it uses the node mgmt IP.  

 

I perfer to force the vserver and lif, rather than the node, when pinging,  that way you're sure where it's going out.

I thought so too, but it is not, because if I use "net ping -vserver cluster -lif node-mgmt-ip -destination remote-ip", it works,  which is basically same as "net ping -node node-name -destination remote-ip".

 

So, it looks "net ping -node node-name -destination remote-ip" is not using the node-mgmt-ip.

I feel like i'm in a time warp.

is each node behaving like that?   Does it matter where the cluster mgmt lif is?
