connectivity issue

Hi,

 

I am having strange network issue, we have two Hp-UX 11.31servers, both the servers are in same IP segment, successfully setup passwordless SSH communication between both the servers, I can connect via ssh without giving password to the second server and vice versa, but suddenly with no change the both the servers cannot ping/SSH each other, although I am connected to both the servers from my machine using SSH.

 

Server 1 --> HISTST01:

oracle@HISTST01:/home/oracle$ ping 10.241.16.102

I have to setup seemless connectivity for these servers for Oracle RAC environment.

Re: connectivity issue

 

Hi,

 

 but suddenly with no change the both the servers cannot ping/SSH each other, although I am connected to both the servers from my machine using SSH.

- so I understand ssh is working but ping not working.

 

- Also what is the OS version.

 

- Can you do a linkloop test between two server adapter. HISTST01 & HISTST02 

from # linkloop -i <PPA>  <MAC>

 

if it says OK that means network level the connection between these two server is fine. And ping /ssh should not have any problem. 

 

 

HTH,

Re: connectivity issue

Hi,

 

No even SSH is not working along with the ping.

 

linkloop between these two servers is OK.

 

 

HISTST01 -> / # ping 10.241.16.102
PING 10.241.16.102: 64 byte packets

----10.241.16.102 PING Statistics----
20 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss

HISTST01 -> / # linkloop -i 0 0x1CC1DE3F30F2
Link connectivity to LAN station: 0x1CC1DE3F30F2
-- OK

 

HISTST02:/# ping 10.241.16.101

PING 10.241.16.101: 64 byte packets

----10.241.16.101 PING Statistics----
44 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss

 

HISTST02:/# linkloop -i 0 0x1CC1DE3F3076
Link connectivity to LAN station: 0x1CC1DE3F3076
-- OK


Thanks.

Re: connectivity issue

Hi,

Actually the issue was IP Address conflict, changed the IP address to resolved the issue.

 

Thanks.
