Issue

  • When configuring a new MetroCluster, it fails to create the MetroCluster IP interfaces with the below error messages:

MCCIP01::> metrocluster configuration-settings interface create -cluster-name MCCIP01 -home-node MCCIP01-01 -home-port e0a -address 192.168.100.120 -netmask 255.255.255.0 -vlan-id 220

Warning: Verify that the attached switches' RCF has been updated with the VLAN ID
value specified using "-vlan-id" parameter before proceeding further.
