Intermittent Netowrk Connectivity issues with C7000/Bl460c Gen8 with FlexFabric Virtual Connect

FYI – SSH from another VM does stay up when the event happens.

 

So it appears that whatever path is being used from a BL460 to the HP Network “may” be the culprit…

When the “event” happens:

 

  1. VNC & SSH sessions from workstations outside the computer room on HP network and VPN’d into HP network are lost
  2. Unable to ping or connect using the 16.125.243.165 address (or DNS name) from entities outside the computer room on the HP network
  3. CAN connect to & ping the VM using the 16.x.x.x address from
    1. other VMs located on BL460s in the C7000 chassis
    2. other VMs located on DL380 in the VM environment
    3. NonStops located in the computer room
    4. vSphere Console

 

All of the “connect” things in C seem to be slow (like waiting on some kind of system resource), but at least they work.  Pings are normal speed.

 

I have not tested SSH from another VM when the event happens to see if that is dropped or if it stays up….

Dave, if you are HP Internal, you might want to take this over to the BladeFieldSupport PDL via email.
