Answer

  • S3 is not subject to multipathing like SAN protocols, so it is made resilient to a node going down through LIF migration.
  • There are not S3-specific considerations for enabling failover.
  • As long as the LIFs being used to access S3 are correctly configured for failover (valid broadcast-domain configuration, failover-policy, and physical network configuration), LIF migration will allow S3 access after LIF migration.
