Issue

  • Continuous cluster network packet loss check events reported. Example:
::> event log show -event vifmgr.cluscheck*
    Time                Node    Severity  Event

  • No hardware problems in SFPs, cables, ports or switches.
  • In some occasions, a cluster ping-cluster check shows issues in one specific port. Example:

::> cluster ping-cluster -node node_name-04
    Cluster node_name-04_clus2 169.254.116.245 node_name-04  e0b
    Basic connectivity fails on 6 path(s)
