metrocluster configuration-settings interface create

Create a MetroCluster interface

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

Description

The metrocluster configuration-settings interface create command configures the network logical interfaces that will be used on a node in a MetroCluster setup to mirror NV logs and access remote storage.

This command is used for MetroCluster setups that are connected though IP links. MetroCluster setups that are connected through FC links do not require the user to provision network logical interfaces to mirror NV logs and access remote storage.

The metrocluster configuration-settings commands are run in the following order to set up MetroCluster:

Before running this command , the node's DR group must be configured using the metrocluster configuration-settings dr-group create command. Run the metrocluster configuration-settings dr-group show command to verify that the node's DR group has been configured.

Parameters

-cluster-name <Cluster name> - Cluster Name
Use this parameter to specify the name of the local or partner cluster.
-home-node <text> - Home Node
Use this parameter to specify the home node in the cluster which hosts the interface.
-home-port {<netport>|<ifgrp>} - Home Port
Use this parameter to specify the home port provisioned for MetroCluster.
-address <IP Address> - Network Address
Use this parameter to specify the network address to be assigned to the home port.
-netmask <Contiguous IP Mask> - Netmask
Use this parameter to specify the network mask to be assigned to the interface.

Examples

This example shows configuring logical interface on MetroCluster IP capable port:

clusA::>  metrocluster configuration-settings interface create -cluster-name clusA -home-node A1 -home-port e0f -address 10.140.113.214 -netmask 255.255.192.0
[Job 281] Job succeeded: Interface Create is successful.
