network port broadcast-domain create

Create a new layer 2 broadcast domain

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

Create a new broadcast domain.
Note: The IPSpace of the ports added will be updated to the IPSpace of the broadcast-domain. A failover-group will be generated containing the ports of the broadcast-domain. The MTU of all of the ports in the broadcast-domain will be updated to the MTU specified for the broadcast-domain.

Parameters

[-ipspace <IPspace>] - IPspace Name
The IPspace to which the new broadcast domain belongs.
-broadcast-domain <Broadcast Domain> - Layer 2 Broadcast Domain
The name of the broadcast domain to be created. The name of the broadcast domain needs to be unique within the IPspace.
-mtu <integer> - Configured MTU
MTU of the broadcast domain.
[-ports <<node>:<port>>, ...] - Ports
The network ports to be added to the broadcast domain. Ports need to be added to the broadcast domain before interfaces can be hosted on the port. By default, no port will be added to the broadcast domain.

Examples

The following example creates broadcast domain "mgmt" in IPspace "Default" with an MTU of 1500 and network ports e0c from node "gx1" and node "gx2".

cluster1::> network port broadcast-domain create -ipspace Default -broadcast-domain mgmt -mtu 1500 -ports gx1:e0c,gx2:e0c
