An error occurred while trying to find preexisting virtual interfaces

Last Updated:

Applies to

ONTAP Select (OTS)

ONTAP Select Deploy (Deploy)


An initial Select deployment fails with error:
Standard output: b'Host not found: ##.##.##.##\n'

Suggestion: An error occurred while trying to find preexisting virtual interfaces on
port group <portgroupname> on host ##.##.##.##.
Verify that port group <portgroupname> exists and is correctly configured, then try again.
If a cluster has been deployed and subsequently reconfigured outside of ONTAP Select Deploy, run a refresh operation on the cluster, and then try again.
