Set-NaNetInterface -NoDdns not working


set-NaNetInterface don't set  parameter noddns on interface with PS v2.2 , just ignored.

Is someone experience the same?



Seems I'm litle bit alone on this thread, anyway I would be very happy if somebody can make a test with Set-NaNetInterface powershell command and confirm that /etc/rc ifconfig line is successfully modified?

I tested on  7.3.7, 8.1.1, 8.1.2 with same problem



Hi Francios, 

  I tried this with toolkit version 2.2 and can verify the /etc/rc does NOT get the no_ddns switch added.

This may be an oversight in the Set-NaInterface cmdlet design.


Hi Francois, could you please elaborate more on your issue.


Hi Vinith,

Do you know how this oversight can be fixed. NGS support case? probably not



Could you please let us know what version of the toolkit you are using and what version of Data ONTAP you are running it against ?


The version is that embeded in WFA 2.0 so toolkit version 2.2 and I tested on 7.3.7, 8.1.1, 8.1.2 with the same issue.


Hi Francois thanks for bringing this to our attention, we’ll work on it to get it fixed in the next release of the toolkit.


Great, thank you.

Do you know when this new release supposed to be out and if it's a long way, if it's possible to have a fix for that.


we're targeting a release in 3 months.


Hi Francois, I would check it up and get back soon.


options dns.update.enable set to secure and the content of


ifconfig vif1-281 `hostname`-vif1-281 netmask broadcast partner vif1-281 up

I would like add an alias on this interface by PS without this ip will register in dns.

PS>Set-NaNetInterface -InterfaceName vif1-281 -Alias -NoDdns

Active configuration works fine

ifconfig vif1-281

vif1-281: flags=0xa4c863<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500

        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast

        inet netmask 0xff000000 broadcast noddns

        partner vif1-281 (not in use)

But RC configuration is not created with no_ddns flag


ifconfig vif1-281 alias netmask broadcast up
