When I typed
network port vlan delete -node node_a -vlan-name e4b-42
I would get this response
Error: command failed: Cannot remove port that is a member of failover rule.
It was hard to fathom this response since I had done this before. Besides I knew there were no LIFs on the port. What could be the matter?
The Network Management Guide even says
When you delete a VLAN, it is automatically removed from all failover rules and groups that use it."
Ah, but then I realised that the Network Management Guide also says:
Before you begin
Ensure that there are no LIFs associated with the VLAN.
Well, migrating the LIF isn't enough. I had to re-home it. It would have saved me some time if the error message had told me that.
net interface modify -home-node node_a -vserver senfs02 a_fs02_e4b-42 -home-port e3b
(network interface modify)
net interface revert -vserver senfs02 a_fs02_e4b-42
(network interface revert)
Now I can delete the VLAN port.
net port vlan delete -node node_a e4b-42
(network port vlan delete)
So I hope that helps someone else in a similar bind.
Now my real problem is to figure out
It's a Brocade 10Gb network.
Thanks! This helped me today in the middle of a head swap!
