About consistency checking in logical interconnect configurations

Consistency checking validates a logical interconnect to ensure that it matches the configuration of its parent logical interconnect group. The appliance monitors both the logical interconnect and logical interconnect group, compares the two, and checks the following for consistency:

Resources

Consistency checking

Ethernet interconnect settings

Are there differences in the following logical interconnect settings from the expected configuration defined by the logical interconnect group?

  • Enabling Fast MAC cache failover

  • MAC refresh intervals

  • Enabling IGMP snooping

  • IGMP idle timeout intervals

  • Loop protection

  • Pause flood protection

Uplink Sets

Are there differences in port assignments or network associations from the configuration defined by the logical interconnect group? Did you add an uplink set?

Internal Networks

Are there differences in the network assignments for server-to-server communication from the configuration defined by the logical interconnect group?

Interconnect maps

Has the logical interconnect group been edited?

Quality of Service (QoS) settings

Have the network service requirements been edited?

If both configurations match, the logical interconnect Consistency state field is set to Consistent and is considered to be compliant.

Any inconsistency results in an alert for the logical interconnect and the Consistency state field is set to Inconsistent with group and the interconnect configuration must be updated.
