Manage broadcast domains with System Manager - ONTAP 9.7 and earlier

Contributors netapp-aoife

You can use ONTAP System Manager classic (available in ONTAP 9.7 and earlier) to create and manage broadcast domains.

Edit broadcast domain settings

You can use System Manager to modify the attributes of a broadcast domain such as the name, the MTU size, and the ports that are associated with the broadcast domain.

About this task
  • You must not modify the MTU size of the broadcast domain to which the management port e0M is assigned.

  • You cannot use System Manager to edit broadcast domains in the cluster IPspace.

    You must use the command-line interface (CLI) instead.

Steps
  1. Click Network > Broadcast Domains.

  2. Select the broadcast domain that you want to modify, and then click Edit.

  3. In the Edit Broadcast Domain dialog box, modify the broadcast domain attributes as required.

  4. Click Save and Close.

Delete broadcast domains

You can delete a broadcast domain by using System Manager when you no longer require the broadcast domain.

Before you begin

No subnets must be associated with the broadcast domain that you want to delete.

About this task
  • When you delete a broadcast domain, the ports that are associated with the broadcast domain are assigned to the default IPspace, and the MTU settings of the ports are not changed.

  • You cannot use System Manager to delete broadcast domains that are in the cluster IPspace.

    You must use the command-line interface (CLI) instead.

Steps
  1. Click Network > Broadcast Domains.

  2. Select the broadcast domain that you want to delete, and then click Delete.

  3. Select the confirmation check box, and then click Delete.
