So Im at my wits end here.. this san has two management interface.. both are configured to be on the same subnet.. actually 1 ip apart.  192.168.55.4 and 192.168.55.5.  I can ping .5, but not .4

The patch cables have been tested good, the config in MDSM shows good.. the switch ports config for both ports are identical.  I've tried pinging .4 from two other subnets including VLAN 1... no dice.  What could give here?

Try to TELNET into the "missing" port.
Does it show up for an arp -a ?

No to the telnet, arp-a yes.  Also verified there is a route to it using the correct interface.

I set the mgmt interface to DHCP and according to my DHCP server it has not pulled an IP yet.  Starting to wonder if my controller is bad.

or that i/f has pulled a different IP address than the one you were expecting?

Pull, pause for a minute, and reseat the controller.

Make sure there are good backups before doing so.

I reverted that mgmt interface to dhcp.  Pulled it, counted to like 60 or something, then reseated and it pulled an address via DHCP.  woot.
