Display LIF information
Contributors Download PDF of this page
You can view detailed information about a LIF to determine its configuration. You might also want to view this information to diagnose basic LIF problems, such as checking for duplicate IP addresses or verifying whether the network port belongs to the correct subnet. storage virtual machine (SVM) administrators can view only the information about the LIFs associated with the SVM.
About this task
The following information is displayed:
IP address associated with the LIF
Administrative status of the LIF
Operational status of the LIF
The operational status of data LIFs is determined by the status of the SVM with which the data LIFs are associated. When the SVM is stopped, the operational status of the LIF changes to down. When the SVM is started again, the operational status changes to up
Node and the port on which the LIF resides
If data for a field is not available (for example, if there is no extended status information), the field value is listed as
Display LIF information by using the network interface show command.
You can view detailed information for each LIF by specifying the -instance parameter, or get specific information by specifying field names using the -fields parameter.
The following command displays general information about all LIFs in a cluster:

The following command shows detailed information about a single LIF:
