Changing VLAN # on NetApp CDOT 8.3 FAS2552

Hi,

 

I have Servers VLAN configured on my NetApp which is VLAN 10 , I need to change from VLAN 10 to VLAN 710 (to free up VLAN 10).

I've made the changes on our switches, just need to move the IP from VLAN 10 to VLAN 710 to make it active.

 

I am wondering what are the steps to change the VLAN on the NetApp, this is the current configuration:

How should I go about changing from VLAN 10 to VLAN 710 ? there's no IP/subnet change, only VLAN number, I would like all configuration to stay as it is, just with the new VLAN 710 .

 

 

Thank you !

Simply create ports in new VLAN, move LIFs to new ports and delete old ports.

So if this is the current config:

 

 

Node   VLAN Name Port    VLAN ID  MAC Address
------ --------- ------- -------- -----------------
dvilcdot1-01
       e0a-10    e0a     10       00:a0:98:
       e0b-10    e0b     10       00:a0:98:
       e0c-10    e0c     10       00:a0:98:
       e0c-45    e0c     45       00:a0:98:
       e0d-10    e0d     10       00:a0:98:
       e0d-45    e0d     45       00:a0:98:
dvilcdot1-02
       e0a-10    e0a     10       00:a0:98:
       e0b-10    e0b     10       00:a0:98:
       e0c-10    e0c     10       00:a0:98:
       e0c-45    e0c     45       00:a0:98:
       e0d-10    e0d     10       00:a0:98:
       e0d-45    e0d     45       00:a0:98:

 

 

I should just type this:

 

dvilcdot1::> network port vlan create -vlan-name e0a-710 -node dvilcdot1-01

 

and do this for each port which is currently assigned to vlan 10 ?

Does the above command creates VLAN 710 on the netapp ?

if the above is correct, after I created all LIFs for VLAN 710 , should I use:

dvilcdot1::> network interface migrate
    migrate     migrate-all
dvilcdot1::> network interface migrate ?
    -vserver <vserver>                       Vserver Name
   [-lif] <lif-name>                         Logical Interface Name
  [ -source-node <nodename> ]                Source Node
   [-destination-node] <nodename>            Destination Node
  [ -destination-port {<netport>|<ifgrp>} ]  Destination Port

to migrate the LIFs to the ports ?

for example,  LIF cluster_mgmt would be migrated to e0a-710 ?  :

dvilcdot1::> network interface show
            Logical    Status     Network            Current       Current Is
Vserver     Interface  Admin/Oper Address/Mask       Node          Port    Home

I apologize for all the questions, this is my first time doing this.

 

Re: Changing VLAN # on NetApp CDOT 8.3 FAS2552


Does the above command creates VLAN 710 on the netapp ?

This creates virtual (tagged) VLAN port for VLAN 710 over physical NIC e0a. It will help if you try to learn cDOT networking architecture and use correct terms. Start with Network Management Guide, Understanding the network configuration chapter.


should I use:

 

dvilcdot1::> network interface migrate
    migrate     migrate-all

to migrate the LIFs to the ports ?


You may need to add new VLAN ports to Servers broadcast domain first. Then you can migrate LIFs using above command and do not forget to modify LIFs home ports as well.

 

What I wonder - if you already reconfigured switches for new VLAN you should have lost connectivity over old VLAN. If you still did not commit switch configuration you can do it NIC by NIC - migrate LIFs off first port, change VLAN configuration on switch, create new VLAN port on filer, migrate LIFs back to new port. This should be fully transparent as long as switch configuration is correct.
