Creating IPspaces

You can create an IPspace by using System Manager to configure a single Data ONTAP cluster for client access from more than one administratively separate network domain, even when the clients use the same IP address subnet range. This enables you to separate client traffic for privacy and security.

About this task

All IPspace names must be unique within a cluster and must not consist of names reserved by the system, such as local or localhost.


  1. Click the Network tab.
  2. In the IPspaces tab, click Create.
  3. In the Create IPspaces dialog box, specify a name for the IPspace that you want to create.
  4. Click Create.
