Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • LIF on non-routed network (subnet)


  • After ONTAP upgrade (including failover) a LIF cannot be reached by (some) clients, anymore
  • Takeover and Giveback of the cluster nodes, restored the access for the clients
  • Root Cause Analysis did not reveal any issue on the ONTAP side (it was found that other clients on the same lif/network were able to connect)
