network interface migrate

Migrate a logical interface to a different port

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

Description

The network interface migrate command migrates a logical interface to a port or interface group on the node you specify.
Note: Manual migration of a logical interface can take up to 15 seconds to complete. Also, when you migrate a cluster logical interface, you must do so from the local node. Logical interface migration is a best-effort command, and can only be completed if the destination node and port are operational
Note: Logical interfaces for SAN protocols do not support migration. Attempts to do so will result in an error.
Note: On some cloud platforms, this operation might perform changes to the external route tables.

Parameters

-vserver <vserver> - Vserver Name
Use this parameter to specify the Vserver that owns the logical interface that is to be migrated.
-lif <lif-name> - Logical Interface Name
Use this parameter to specify the logical interface that is to be migrated.
-destination-node <nodename> - Destination Node
Use this parameter to specify the node to which the logical interface is to be migrated.
[-destination-port {<netport>|<ifgrp>}] - Destination Port
Use this parameter to specify the port or interface group to which the logical interface is to be migrated.
[-force [true]] - Force Migrate Data LIF Flag (privilege: advanced)
Use this parameter to force the migration operation.

Examples

The following example migrates a logical interface named datalif1 on a Vserver named vs0 to port e0c on a node named node2:
cluster1::> network interface migrate -vserver vs0 -lif datalif1 -dest-node node2 -dest-port e0c
