Delete Redundant Cluster LIF

How can I delete a redundant cluster LIF?  I'd like to change the role of e0d on nas1b from cluster to data on a non-production FAS2240 running cDOT 8.2.1.  Before I can do that though I need to delete the associated LIF, but I'm not able to delete a LIF that's associated with a sitelist.

Re: Delete Redundant Cluster LIF

I tested technique described here: https://kb.netapp.com/support/index?page=content&id=1012161 and it appears to work. YMMV. I would contact support to be sure as always when you have to use diag level commands …

Alternative is to unjoin node from cluster and join again using single port.
