9.4 Cluster LIF rename

I'm attempting to rename a cluster LIF on an AFF A-300 running 9.4p1. When doing the rename, it just adds what I specify as the new name to the end of the existing name rather than replacing the entire name. Are cluster LIFs re-nameable or is there another way to go about doing it? I've tried from both admin and advanced mode on the local node but no luck. See below for an example of what i'm seeing.


Existing LIF name: cluster1-01_clus1 

I'd like to change to cluster1-02_clus1

When trying to change it, my name comes out as cluster1-01_cluster1-02_clus1

My command to make the name change is: net int rename -v Cluster -lif cluster1-01_clus1 -newname cluster1-02_clus1

I just adds the new name to the end of the existing.


Re: 9.4 Cluster LIF rename

Are you able to rename non-Cluster LIFs ok?   



Re: 9.4 Cluster LIF rename

Check all LIFs name, I think you already have the LIF named "cluster1-02_clus1", the LIF name can't be duplicate

Re: 9.4 Cluster LIF rename

I am able to completely re-name non Cluster LIFs. I also tired renaming one of the cluster LIFs to just TEST and all it did, was add TEST to the end of the current name after the underscore, making it cluster1-02_TEST.
