Change home port of a cluster management LIF permanently?

Hi,

 

ONTAP 9.1RC1

FAS8040HA

 

I have a LIF for NDMP backups but it's on 1Gbps link which gets saturated frequently. The LIF has cluster management role and I am able to move it to one of the 10GbE ports. However, I can't seem to make the 10GbE port as the LIF's new home port. Is it possible to re-home a LIF with the cluster management role?

 

Thanks,

Hi,

 

Refer the commands below:

Check current settings

::> network interface show -lif cluster_mgmt
Logical                                      Status           Network           Current                   Current Is
Vserver          Interface           Admin/Oper Address/Mask Node                      Port       Home
----------------- ------------------- ----------------- ------------------ ------------------------ ----------- ----
cm3270-ams cluster_mgmt up/up             10.64.24.65/24 cm3270-ams-01 e0M        true

 

Change the home port or node using net int modify as below:

For home port options are listed using tab

 

 

cm3270-ams::> network int modify -vserver cm3270-ams -lif cluster_mgmt -home-node cm3270-ams-01 -home-port 
e0M e0a e0b e1b e2b
