NDE fails at configuring the network

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • NetApp HCI 
  • NetApp Deployment Engine (NDE) versions 1.8 and 1.9


One of more of the following symptoms apply:

  • NDE fails at between 11-75% in the configuring the network task, changing network settings of the storage nodes
  • Bond1G (management) address is assigned to the storage node but Bond10G (storage) is not
  • Some nodes are configured with static Bond10G interface and others are configured with DHCP (APIPA address)
  • The Bond Mode on the Bond10G interfaces of storage nodes is set to ActivePassive instead of LACP 
  • NDE shows "The gateway is not valid" during network validation
  • Error seen in the NDE logs: 

post_response_validator:150  | DEBUG   | Validate Network IPs network=storageIscsi
solidfireutils:348  | DEBUG   | fan_out_test_address_availability: ip_list=[IPv4Address('<10G_storageA>'), IPv4Address('<10G_storageB>'), IPv4Address('<10G_storageC>'), <omitted>],
fabrixtools:1727 | WARNING | Interface Bond10G is already configured with 169.254.X.X
