Configuring broadcast domains (cluster administrators only)

Broadcast domains enable you to group network ports that belong to the same layer 2 network. The ports in the group can then be used by a Storage Virtual Machine (SVM) for data or management traffic.

A broadcast domain resides in an IPspace. During cluster initialization, the system creates two default broadcast domains:

If you have created unique IPspaces to separate client traffic, then you need to create a broadcast domain in each of those IPspaces.
