Issue

  • Post upgrade to ONTAP 9.3 LACP ifgrp shows partial participation for one of the port:

::*> ifgrp show -node node01 -ifgrp a0a
                 Node: node01
Interface Group Name: a0a
Distribution Function: ip
        Create Policy: multimode_lacp
          MAC Address: 92:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
   Port Participation: partial
        Network Ports: e0c, e0d
             Up Ports: e0c
           Down Ports: e0d

  • This issue is not seen when we change to static multimode ifgrp:

With multimode ports show full participation:    
::*> ifgrp show -node node01 -ifgrp a0a
                 Node: node01
Interface Group Name: a0a
Distribution Function: ip
        Create Policy: multimode
          MAC Address: 92:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
   Port Participation: full
        Network Ports: e0c, e0d
             Up Ports: e0c, e0d
           Down Ports: -  

  • This issue is seen only with CNA card 8324:
