Any similarity to actual persons, or entities, living or dead, is purely coincidental and not intended in any manner.

  

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:

...

networksetup-two: passed
networksetup-two: ssh into servers on client network by name
networksetup-two: passed
networksetup-two: test ntp servers
networksetup-two: passed
networksetup-two: ping client gateway
networksetup-two: ping <CLIENT_IP_ADDRESS> (element# 2) failed

 

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           ---                          ---              ---
node05      ib1   up    no   no             ---                          ---              ---
node05      eth8  up    no   no           <switch>-ib-sw1  0A-ETH-1         ---
node05      eth9  up    yes  yes         <switch>-ib-sw2  0A-ETH-1         no

 

3. The arp test shows output like:

[root@node05 network]# arp -a
node03-adm (<ADM_IP_HOST3>) at <HARDWARE_ADDRESS_HOST3> [ether] on eth0
? (<ADM_IP_HOSTx>) at <HARDWARE_ADDRESS_HOSTx> [ether] on bondeth0
? (<ADM_IP_HOSTy>) at <HARDWARE_ADDRESS_HOSTy> [ether] on bondeth0
? (<ADM_IP_HOSTz>) at <HARDWARE_ADDRESS_HOSTz> [ether] on bondeth0

 

4. The bdachecknet script fails with errors as follows:

...

bdachecknet: test admin name array matches ip array
<ADM_IP_HOST1>
bdachecknet: host name json element does not correspond to json element ip address: node01-adm (!=  index 0)
<ADM_IP_HOST2>
bdachecknet: host name json element does not correspond to json element ip address: node02-adm (!=  index 1)
<ADM_IP_HOST3>
bdachecknet: host name json element does not correspond to json element ip address: node03-adm (!=  index 2)
<ADM_IP_HOST4>
bdachecknet: host name json element does not correspond to json element ip address: node04-adm (!=  index 3)
...
