I have setup ONTAP 8.3 simultor in cluster mode on ESXi 6.5. Below are the network interface details:
AFAIK, I should connect to cluster_mgmt but when I try to ping it from my laptop, it doesn't work.
What am I missing here ?
See The Solution
Try to move the cluster_mgmt to port e0c
network interface modify -vserver clu1 -lif cluster_mgmt -home-port e0c
hope this help!
Thanks for your response.
I executed the command that you gave me.
Now it shows as false.
try to move it to home port.
network interface revert *
Looks good now. But I am still not able to ping it from my laptop.
can you ping the other mgmt IPs (189 & 190)?
if yes, maybe there is a IP conflict with 191 IP.
else no, try to verify your laptop network configuration.
I am not able to ping 189 and 190 as well . Looks like that the network route has to be modified. I am using VPN. Is it possible to change all the 10.1.* IP's to 10.100.*
I am not able to ping the gateway as well.
Can I change the gateway as well to the one that is reachable via my laptop?
Ontap let you change any network element as needed. Make sure your network setup is configure correctly before doing any modifications to the mgmt interfaces.
Hope this helps.
