Issue

  • Attempt to add a new LIF using a specific IP from a predefined Subnet in OnCommand System Manager (OCSM) fails with error:  

Data ONTAP API Failed: Subnet "Subnet_name" in IPspace "IPSpace_name" does not have address "x.x.x.x" available. (Error 13001)

  • Same error is shown when an attempt is made to create the LIF from the CLI:

Error: Command failed: Subnet "Subnet_name" in IPspace "IPSpace_name" does not have address "x.x.x.x" available.

  • No IP addresses in the subnet are available despite only few being actually in use.
  • The "missing" IPs are not found anywhere on the cluster:
  • ​​​​​​10 IP addresses are reported in use:

::> network subnet show -ipspace Default -subnet-name Demo -instance
                     IPspace Name: Default
                      Subnet Name: Demo
                 Broadcast Domain: Default
                   Layer 3 Subnet: 10.20.30.0/24
                          Gateway: 10.20.30.1
IP Addresses or IP Address Ranges: 10.20.30.41-10.20.30.50
              Total Address Count: 10
               Used Address Count: 10            
          Available Address Count: 0

  • Only 2 IP addresses are in use by LIFs - 8 are "missing":

::> network interface show -vserver * -lif * -ipspace * -address 10.20.30.*
