Problem started after upgrading to PureDisk with NB_PDE_6.6.1.2_EEB04-rollup1. Iptables appears to have taken on incorrect values, blocking communications between the SPA and the secondary NBU,CR node.


What are the steps to turn iptables back on making sure the proper rules are in place? 

We suspect something may have happened with the loading of the firewall rules.  You can check this file on the SPA and the other nodes to see if there are any differences.

# more /etc/puredisk/custom_iptables_rules

If the values are the same on all nodes, then restart IPTables on the SPA to see if the correct values are shown.

If that file is somehow different on the SPA, then that may be why it had different rules.
Also, running this script on the SPA should set the firewall rules to the correct values.
# /etc/init.d/pdiptables restore

Then start iptables again to see if the correct values are being used.

Verify pdcr no longer crashes.
