Issue

 

  1. The message below is present in ONTAP logs:
Mon Dec 14 00:38:57 UTC [node01: vifmgr: vifmgr.bcastDomainPartition:error]: Broadcast domain VLAN1190 is partitioned into 2 groups on node node01. The different groups are: {e0a-123}, {e0c-123}. LIFs hosted on the ports in this broadcast domain may be at the risk of seeing connectivity issues.
 
  1. The affected ports are connected to different switches
  2. Switch ports are correctly configured for VLAN trunking
interface Ethernet1/10
switchport mode trunk
switchport trunk allowed vlan 123
 
  1. On switch show vlan brief does not show the VLAN
#show vlan brief
