LIF not responding after being migrated or failing over to another node

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • Networking


  • It is found that clients on specific networks are unable to reach LIFs with ping timeout when the LIFs are migrated to another node in the cluster or during failover activity
  • If the LIF is moved to a specific node, the clients are able to reach it and ping works normally
  • The backend network is checked to find no obvious problems and no differences in configuration between a working and not working storage node
