Environment



VCS 5.0MP3

2 node cluster

LLT links /etc/llttab

link en3 /dev/dlpi/en:3 - ether - 1500

---use of ethernet switch VLAN for LLT links


Cause



LLT links are setup using ethernet switch VLANs

---Each LLT link must be assigned to unique switch VLAN

---Need to confirm the VLAN configuration for each link


Solution



---Network admin changes VLAN ID for 2nd LLT link to be different that 1st LLT link.

----Ethernet switch status and VLAN ID
