- ONTAP 9
- If a data LIF is not present (or down), the AV Connector will not attempt to connect to clustered Data ONTAP nodes
- The ONTAP AV Connector does an ONTAPI call to get the list of 'UP' data LIFs that are serving CIFS
- The ONTAP AV Connector will only attempt to connect to LIFs recognized as 'UP'
- This takes into account both the administrative status and operational status of a given LIF
- This also takes into account whether or not a given LIF can reach a netlogon server
