Subsequently the monitor script will attempt to read remaining arguments passed by the agent (none), for "1" iterations:ping <null> 5 2,which is interpreted by the shell as: ping 5 2 # equivalent to "ping 0.0.0.5 2"Note that in VCS 2.0, and above, the monitor script will attempt to ping 0.0.0.5.
To resolve this issue, config the gateway IP to the NIC monitor as follow:
# haconf -makerw
# hares -modify vvrnic NetworkHosts x.x.x.x (gateway IP)
# hares -dump -makero
The monitor script will attempt to ping gateway ip and when that fails, will resort to pinging the broadcast address which allows the monitor function to pass.Then no error message will be reported.
