Issue

  • Ping from the client machine to the storage LIF fails despite ICMP being allowed in the network.

[root@localhost ~]# ping 10.216.41.xx
PING 10.216.41.xx (10.216.41.xx) 56(84) bytes of data.
^C
--- 10.216.41.xx ping statistics ---
15 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 13999ms

  • Mount operation fails with a timeout on the client machine.

[root@localhost ~]# mount 10.216.41.xx:/vol1 /mnt
mount.nfs: Connection timed out

  • IP addresses from two different networks configured on the same storage port.

  • The client machine is in the same network as the wrong LIF.
