Moving non-SAN data LIFs and cluster management LIFs to the new nodes

After you have moved the volumes from the original nodes, you need to migrate the non-SAN data LIFs and cluster-management LIFs from the original nodes to the new nodes.

About this task

You cannot migrate a LIF that is used for copy-offload operations with VMware vStorage APIs for Array Integration (VAAI).

Steps

  1. From the node where the cluster LIF is hosted, change the home ports for the non-SAN data LIFs from the original nodes to the new nodes: network interface modify -vserver vserver_name -lif lif_name -home-node new_node_name -home-port {netport|ifgrp}
  2. Take one of the following actions:
    If you want to migrate... Then enter...
    A specific LIF network interface migrate -vserver vserver_name -lif lif_name -source-node source_node_name -destination-node dest_node_name -destination-port dest_port_name
    All the non-SAN data LIFs and cluster-management LIFs network interface migrate-all -node node_name
    Example
    The following command migrates a LIF named datalif1 on the SVM vs0 to the port e0d on node0b:
    cluster::> network interface migrate -vserver vs0 -lif datalif1 -destination-node node0b -destination-port e0d
    The following command migrates all the data and cluster-management LIFs from the current (local) node:
    cluster::> network interface migrate-all -node local
  3. Check whether the home node of the cluster-management LIF is on one of the original nodes: network interface show -lif cluster_mgmt -fields home-node
  4. If the home node of the cluster management LIF is on one of the original nodes, complete the following steps:
    1. Switch the home node of the cluster-management LIF to one of the new nodes: network interface modify -vserver cluster_name -lif cluster_mgmt -home-node new_node_name -home-port {netport|ifgrp}
    2. Migrate the cluster-management LIF to one of the new nodes: network interface migrate -vserver vserver_name -lif cluster-mgmt -destination-node new_node_name -destination-port {netport|ifgrp}
