How to set LIF DataProtocol with set-ncnetinterface?

Hi there,

 

DataProtocol is an (get;set) Option of get-ncnetinterface

 

PS C:\Users\oroemisc\My Documents> Get-NcNetInterface -Name cifs_admin_lif1 -Vserver cifs | gm


TypeName: DataONTAP.C.Types.Net.NetInterfaceInfo

Name MemberType Definition
---- ---------- ----------

.

.

DataProtocols Property string[] DataProtocols {get;set;}

.

 

I need to add CIFS to it, currently it is "none" because it was a management only LIF before.

 

So i used 

 

( Set-NcNetInterface -Vserver cifs -Name cifs_admin_lif1 ).DataProtocols = "cifs"

 

but this doesn't change the value.

 

I think it is more a "PowerShell lack of knowledge" from me than an CMDLet misbehaviour...

 

Any help appreciated.

 

Regards

Oli

The Set-NcNetInterface does not allow you to modify the data-protocol for a LIF, as far as I can see. Try using The Update-NcNetInterface command

 

$query = Get-NcNetInterface -Template
$attrs = Get-NcNetInterface -Template
$query.Vserver = "cifs"
$query.InterfaceName = "cifs_admin_lif_1" $attrs.DataProtocols = ("cifs") Update-NcNetInterface -Query $query -Attributes $attrs

Hope this helps,

The data-protocol parameter is a requirement at creation time and cannot be modified later through any method PowerShell included.

"The data-protocol parameter must be specified when the LIF is created, and cannot be modified later."
