Data interface lif for fcp has Failover Policy: disabled. Is it correct?

Good afternoon!
I have NetApp FAS2552 ONTAP 9.1 Cluster HA (two nodes).
In the Network Interfaces settings I can see that the data interface lif for cifs has Failover Policy: system_defined. It's good.
But the data interface lif for fcp has Failover Policy: disabled. Is it correct? In this case, will fault tolerance be ensured when rebooting or shutting down one of the two nodes?FailoverPolicy.jpg

FCP or iSCSI lifs don't failover.   Your hosts need to rely on multipathing for failover.
