Issue

  • VIFMGR can log the following EMS entry when a l2ping happens across ports of a Broadcast Domain:

[node1: vifmgr: vifmgr.bcastDomainPartition:alert]: Broadcast domain BD1 is partitioned into 2 groups on node node1. The different groups are: {E0M}, {A0A}. LIFs hosted on the ports in this broadcast domain may be at the risk of seeing connectivity issues.

  • Running the command broadcast-domain show returns the correct information for the broadcast domain:

cluster::*> network port broadcast-domain show
IPspace Broadcast
