(DEPRECATED)-Create a routing group

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


Note This command has been deprecated and may be removed from a future version of Data ONTAP. Use the "network route" command set to configure routes instead.

The network routing-groups create command creates a group of static routes. After you have created a routing group, you can add routes to the group by using the network routing-groups route create command.


-vserver <vserver> - Vserver Name

Specifies the node or Vserver on which the routing group will be created.

-routing-group <text> - Routing Group

Specifies the name of the routing group that you want to create.

-subnet <IP Address/Mask> - Address/Mask

Specifies the IP address and subnet mask of the routing group’s destination. The format for this value is: address, slash ("/"), mask. The example below has as a valid value for the -subnet parameter.

-role {cluster|data|node-mgmt|intercluster|cluster-mgmt} - Role

Defines the role of the routing group. The routing group can be a cluster, data, node management, intercluster, or cluster management routing group. There is no default.

[-metric <integer>] - Metric

Specifies a hop count for the routing group that you are creating. The default is 20.
