I'm going to remove my only dedicated CIFS VIF from my FAS310 and use e0m to manage the filer. The filer is a member of an AD domain, does removing the CIFS VIF have any bearing on this? Is there anything I need to consider when removing the VIF?
Does I understand you correctly, that you just want delete a VIF and put the VIF-ip address on a single interface e0M? Or is your VIF today all your interfaces (including e0M) and do you just want to remove e0M from the VIF?
Normally, when your filer is add to your domain, than you can do almost everything with your network configuration. Depending on the situation, you will you have a small interruption of the cifs service (downtime). When you play with your network configuration, be aware that you keep connection to the filer (RLM, other interface, ...).
