Migrating a LIF

Contributors netapp-ivanad

You can use System Manager to migrate a data LIF or a cluster management LIF to a different port on the same node or on a different node within the cluster if the source port is 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.

About this task
  • If you are removing the NIC from the node, you must migrate the LIFs that are hosted on the ports belonging to the NIC to other ports in the cluster.

  • You cannot migrate iSCSI LIFs or FC LIFs.

  1. Click Network > Network Interfaces.

  2. Select the interface that you want to migrate, and then click Migrate.

  3. In the Migrate Interface dialog box, select the destination port to which you want to migrate the LIF.

  4. Select the Migrate Permanently check box if you want to set the destination port as the new home port for the LIF.

  5. Click Migrate.
