Migrating a LIF

You can use System Manager to migrate a data LIF or a cluster-management LIF to a different port on the same node or a different node within the cluster, if the port is either faulty or requires maintenance.

Before you begin

The destination node and ports must be operational and must be able to access the same network as the source port.
