The following symptoms exist while configuring the Oracle Big Data Appliance network.

 

1. The networksetup-two script fails when trying to ping the client data gateway as shown below:

...

2. The bdacheckvnics script also shows a "no" for pinging the gateway:

[root@node05 ~]# cd /opt/oracle/*/network
[root@node05 network]# ./bdacheckvnics

    host      if   status actv primary    switch                     gw port       ping gw
============== ===  ====== ==== === ====================== ========= ======
node05      ib0   up    yes  yes           ---                          ---              ---
