NIM alternate_master in different subnet

NIM alternate_master in different subnet

NIM alternate_master in different subnet

Hi All,

i have an issue relating to defining an alternate_master. Let's first show the setup:

CODE -->

nim01 =
nim02 = 

Networks + routing:

CODE -->

   routing1 = default
   routing1 = default 

Ports opened in firewall; 1508,1509,3901,3902

However, when i define the alternate_master, i get:

CODE --> ksh

# niminit -a is_alternate=yes -a master=nim01 -a pif_name=en0 -a cable_type1=tp -a connect=nimsh -a name=nim02
