Manage subnets 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 manage subnets.

Edit subnet settings

You can use System Manager to modify subnet attributes such as the name, subnet address, range of IP addresses, and gateway address of the subnet.

About this task
  • You cannot use System Manager to edit subnets in the cluster IPspace.

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

  • Modifying the gateway address does not update the route.

    You must use the CLI to update the route.

Steps
  1. Click Network > Subnets.

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

    You can modify the subnet even when the LIF in that subnet is still in use.

  3. In the Edit Subnet dialog box, modify the subnet attributes as required.

  4. Click Save and Close.

Delete subnets

You can use System Manager to delete a subnet when you no longer require the subnet and you want to reallocate the IP addresses that were assigned to the subnet.

Before you begin

The subnet that you want to delete must not have any LIFs that are using the IP addresses from the subnet.
