Issue

Check Active IQ if this impacts your systems

Ethernet interfaces do not come up after a cluster takeover event and ifconfig cannot be used to bring up interface on taken over node partner shell. Using ifconfig via the partner shell on the active node gives the following output:

filer2/filer1> ifconfig e0a `hostname`-e0a netmask 255.255.255.0 trusted -wins partner e0a
ifconfig: e0a: no such interface
filer2/filer1> Thu Sep 2 09:46:53 EDT [filer2/filer1: net.ifconfig.noPartner:error]: ifconfig: e0a cannot be configured: Address does not match any partner interface
.

The problem interface(s) do not show up via the partner shell when issuing ifconfig -a
