Why are FC LIFs getting deleted when FC ports are unchecked in FC settings?

Last Updated:

Applies to

ONTAP System Manager (OSM)


When unchecking the LIF, FC LIFs get deleted.

Currently, System Manager displays this message:

"It is recommended that you select an equal number of FC ports in each node of the HA pair. The following network interfaces will be deleted because the ports have been unselected. <lif_name>".

Ensure there is an acknowledgment of the deletion.
