Dell EMC VxRail: Validate networks may fail during node expansion   
   
    During node expansion, you may encounter:   'Physical nic connection error' and 'VLAN error' errors  when validating networks. The node expansion then fails.   
    However both physical NICs and VLANs are fine.
                                                           

 

 

Cause:

 

 

This is a known issue with the 'ping-from-interface.py' script with old code version.   
    When validating networks, once it fails, it won't try and validate again and node expansion will fail.
                                                           

 

 

Resolution:

 

 

Resolution: This issue is fixed in the code 4.5.300.
