Issue

  • Data services may be  impacted causing failed mounts to clients and Applications
  • node1's EMS is reporting numerous network related errors in EMS and VIFMgr

Sun Jun 14 23:59:05 -0700 [node1: vifmgr: vifmgr.rpc.nblade.timeouts:error]: The Logical Interface Manager (VIFMgr) is not receiving responses from the nblade.
 
  • Since then we see these errors on a daily basis. 
  • Eventually leading to an NFS outage due to a hung system
  • As the message is referring to VIFMgr we checked over the VIFMgr logs and noticed there is a process timeout not long before we see the first error in EMS.
