network interface failover-groups create

Create a new failover group

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


The network interface failover-groups create command creates a grouping of failover targets for logical interfaces on one or more nodes. Use this command to add a new network port or interface group to an existing failover group.
Note: Interfaces for SAN protocols do not support failover. Such interfaces are not valid failover targets.


-vserver <vserver> - Vserver Name
Use this parameter to specify the name of the Vservers from which this failover group is accessible.
-failover-group <text> - Failover Group Name
Use this parameter to specify the name of the logical interface failover group that you want to create.
-targets <<node>:<port>>, ... - Failover Targets
Use this parameter to specify the list of failover targets (network ports, interface groups, or VLANs on a node) belonging to this failover group.


The following example shows how to create a failover group named failover-group_2 containing ports e1e and e2e on node Xena.
cluster1::> network interface failover-groups create -vserver vs0 -failover-group failover-group_2 -targets xena:e1e,xena:e2e
