I have inherited a situation where the CIFs & NFS LIFs from a retiring node in a switched cluster have been migrated (during an outage window because of the disconnect/reconnect issue), but are still showing as not home (i.e. the new node is curr-node, but not home-node).
Does modifying the LIF property and making the new node the home-node of the LIF cause _any_ disruption or temporary disconnects?
There is a very slight interruption which will cause slight delay of possibly lost TCP packets or redirected TCP packets (maybe at most half a second?) for all TCP traffic when moving LIF. CIFS/SMB1 aren't as resilient but SMB2+ have gotten a lot better about the interruption of the stateful protocol.
