ONTAP 8.3 Cluster mode simulator : Which IP should I connect to ?

sudhirchamp2005

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 ?

Try to move the cluster_mgmt to port e0c

 

network interface modify -vserver clu1 -lif cluster_mgmt -home-port e0c

Thanks for your response.

I executed the command that you gave me.

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.

  • try to test it assigning other 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.

 

Good luck!
