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.
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: This issue is fixed in the code 4.5.300.

Workaround: Replace the 'ping-from-interface.py' script with new version and please note to change the script permissions
Note: The attachment is the new version script
