With cDOT 8.3, there is a new feature called broadcast domain.
When a broadcast domain is created, a failover group of the same name is created automatically.
For example, with a two nodes cluster with each two 10g ports.
I want LIF failover only on 10g ports.
What is the NetApp best practice ?
- Create a broadcast domain with 10g ports
- Create a user-defined failover groups with 10g ports
What is the benefit of a broadcast domain versus a user-defined failover group ?
think of it as a Layer 2 LAN inside a IPspace. the failover groups will be assosiated with a broadcast domain
