Description

By default, the network ports on the node have the following roles:

::> network port show
                                          Auto-Negot  Duplex      Speed (Mbps)
Node        Port   Role     Link  MTU     Admin/Oper  Admin/Oper  Admin/Oper
----------- ------ -------- ----- ------- ----------- ----------- ------------
cluster1-01
            e0a    cluster   up   9000    true/true   full/full   1000/1000
            e0b    cluster   up   9000    true/true   full/full   1000/1000
            e0c    data      up   1500    true/true   full/full   1000/1000
            e0d    data      up   1500    true/true   full/full   1000/1000
 

However, one of the nodes do not show the roles correctly:

::> net port show -node cluster1-03
(network port show)
                                                           Speed (Mbps)
Node         Port   IPspace  Broadcast Domain Link  MTU    Admin/Oper
------------ ------ -------- ---------------- ----- ------ ------------
cluster1-03
             e0a    Cluster  Cluster          up    9000  auto/10000
             e0b    Default  Default          up    1500  auto/10000
             e0c    Cluster  Cluster          up    9000  auto/10000
             e0d    Default  Default          up    1500  auto/10000
 

The following error appears when attempting to change the IPspace and broadcast domain of port e0b:
::> net port modify -node cluster1-03 -port e0b -ipspace Cluster
(network port modify)

Error: command failed: Cannot directly modify the IPspace on this port; instead add it to the appropriate broadcast domain in the desired IPspace.
