VM300 Live Migration - MS HyperV S2D - MAC Address/ MAC Spoofing

L0 Member

We have a 4 node Hyper V S2D cluster with a single VM300 appliance.  We have been able to successfully live migrate the VM from node to node without any issues.

We are in the process of modifying the North / South network fabric.  I have successfully update the network on 3 of the 4 nodes.  When I went to do the final node (the node that the VM300 resides on), I live migrated the VM to one of the other nodes.  When I did the migration all network connectivity in and out of the PAN VM300 stopped.

Through troubleshooting it looked as though there was a possible issue with the way the MAC addresses of the appliance were setup.

Has anyone successfully setup a single VM300 in a HyperV cluster and was able to migrate from node to node?  What are the suggested MAC address settings in the appliance as well as the S2D cluster vNIC settings for the VM.


Old Fabric:

-onboard intel nic (physical) connected to a single Cisco Nexus 9000 switch.  Using HyperV switch for VM traffic managment.


New Fabric

-Mellanox ConnectX 4LX NICs, connected to new Cisco Nexus 9000 switches.  Using a HyperV switch configured as a SET (Switch embedded teaming).

Have you checked ?






Also have you anabled promiscuous mode or copied the mac address that the Hyper-V gave to the VM?






Also have you tested with traditional NIC teaming and not SET as if the issue is with the SET teaming raise a case to Palo Alto TAC?
