  • Clustered Data ONTAP 8
  • Clustered Data ONTAP 8.1

Description

In Data ONTAP Cluster-Mode, many clients can be connected to various nodes in a cluster for NAS access. There are scenarios where it might be useful to know the node, port, or lif to which a specific client is connected.

The following are a few possible scenarios:

  • If a specific client has connectivity issues, it is necessary to determine the node on which you can run a packet trace.
  • If a specific client is running an exceptional load, it might help to determine the lif to which it is connected for load balancing purposes.
