Displaying all LIFs in a SVM using the CLI

Contributors netapp-adityaw

You can display information about all LIFs in a SVM. You might want to display all LIFs before you determine which LIFs might be busy and should be moved.

About this task

The operational status of a LIF is determined by whether it has been configured on a particular port and is capable of serving data. When a SVM is stopped, the associated Data LIFs and SVM Management LIFs can no longer serve data. The operational status of these LIFs changes to down.


  1. To display information about all LIFs in a SVM, enter the following command: network interface show -vserver vserver_name

    The command displays the following information:

    • Node or SVM associated with the LIF

    • LIF name

    • Administrative and operational status

    • IP address

    • Netmask

    • Node and port on which the LIF is configured

      A home server can be either a node or a SVM.

      If data for a field is not available (for instance, the operational duplex and speed for an inactive port), the field is listed as undef.


      You can get all available information by specifying the -instance parameter.

      The following example displays general information about all LIFs in a SVM:

      vs1::> network interface show -vserver vs1
