ONTAP 9.5 and higher

Answer

  • In ONTAP, firewall settings contain rules which limit what service ports can be contacted, and from which client IP addresses they may be contacted
    • These are controlled by either firewall-policy, or service-policy
  • Starting with ONTAP 9.5, service policy settings were introduced with the network interface service-policy command tree
In ONTAP 9.5, service policies can only be used to configure a limited number of service
  • Starting with ONTAP 9.6, you can assign service policies, instead of LIF roles, to LIFs that determine the kind of traffic that is supported for the LIFs
    • Service policies define a collection of network services supported by a LIF
Starting with ONTAP 9.6, LIF roles are deprecated and service policies are supported for all types of services
