  • MetroCluster

Answer

Yes. In clustered Data ONTAP, multiple management interfaces can be created.
This might be required, for example, to have the MetroCluster Health monitoring in one subnet, while having the actual administration clients connect via a separate network. 

Additional Information

Note: Routing between these interfaces is not possible and does not occur.
