ONTAP 9

Description

  • Within ONTAP 9 networking ports are organized within broadcast-domains 
  • After a port is added to a broadcast domain you might wish to move that port to a different broadcast domain
  • If the port is the home port for a LIF or currently hosting a LIF, attempting to remove the port from the broadcast domain will result in this error:

cluster1::> network port broadcast-domain remove-ports -broadcast-domain BD2 -ports cluster1-01:e0c

Error: command failed: Port "cluster1-01:e0c" cannot be used because it is currently the home port or current port of a LIF. To view LIFs with a specified home port, use the "network interface show -home-node <nodename> -home-port {<netport>|<ifgrp>}"command. To view LIFs with a specified current port, use the "network interface show -curr-node <nodename> -curr-port {<netport>|<ifgrp>}" command.
