Can multiple IP addresses be added to a LIF in cDOT 8.3?


In our network configuration with our FAS8040 running cDOT 8.3 we have multiple network interfaces setup with 2 physical ports running dynamic multimode IP balancing (LACP) for source-destination load balancing with VMware.


In order to achieve this we need to have multiple destination IP addresses coming to the network interfaces.


Can a single LIF be created with multiple IP addresses or do we need multiple LIFs with a single IP address per LIF?



Each LIF can have only one IP address. Just create multiple LIF on same LACP interface group.


Thank you. That's what we've been doing.
