What is the impact of updating the Domain controller IP address

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • Domain Controller
  • DNS


  • There will be no impact by updating the Domain Controller IP addresses as DNS will be providing that update to ONTAP.
  • If preferred DCs are added to the environment, modify the existing preferred DC with the new DC IP address.
    vserver cifs domain preferred-dc add

Additional Information

In scenarios, where the DC and DNS are same, then update the IP address of the DNS in ONTAP using below command :
::> vserver services name-service dns  modify -vserver <vserver> -domain <domain_name> -name-servers <DNS_server_IP>,<DNS_server_IP>,<DNS_server_IP>
