Issue

During a Controller Hardware upgrade we could not delete the existing ports.

::>network port delete -node netapp-n01 -port e0i
Port "e0i" on node "netapp-n01" is hosting VLAN interfaces. Use the "network port vlan delete" command to remove VLAN configuration from the port, then try the command again.

::>network port vlan delete -node netapp-n02 -port e0i -vlan-id 10
Error: Cannot remove port that is a failover target for a LIF. To list LIFs containing a failover target, use the "network interface show -failover-targets
" command.

::>network port broadcast-domain remove-ports -broadcast-domain Default -ports netapp-n02:e0i-10 -ipspace Default
Error: This operation deletes all failover targets from the failover group that is in use by a lif (cluster_mgmt).
