Hello Fellow Toasters,

I can't seem to find any document describing the option interface.blocked.mgmt_data_traffic (found e.g. in Data ONTAP 7.3.6P2, default value: off). Google and now.netapp.com search did not return a single hit.

Kindest regards

Peter

The option interface.blocked.mgmt_data_traffic controls the protocol filter for dedicated management ports, such as e0M on many platforms (not all platforms have a dedicated management port). If the option is set to on (the default for new installs), then NDMP, NFS, CIFS, iSCSI and the SNAP* family of data protocols will be blocked by the dedicated management port. "On" is the recommended setting because a dedicated management port is a low-bandwidth port that does not support jumbo frames, vlans or ifgrps. If a dedicated management port is used for data traffic, it can hide misconfigurations that might lead to serious loss of filer throughput. A dedicated management port should only be configured with addresses that are on isolated management-only subnets.

Will this also block/restrict e0M from registering to DNS if the option dns.update.enable secure is set? I'm trying to keep the e0M interface from dynamically registering the hostname.

Just found this... in the ifconfig the "no_ddns" parameter...   ifconfig e0M no_ddns IP_address
