Create a broadcast domain
Contributors Download PDF of this page
You must create a broadcast domain for a custom IPspace. The SVMs created in the IPspace use the ports in the broadcast domain.
|This task is relevant for ONTAP 9.0 - 9.7, not ONTAP 9.8.|
You must be a cluster administrator to perform this task.
The port to which a LIF fails over must be a member of the failover group for the LIF. When you create a broadcast domain, ONTAP automatically creates a failover group with the same name. The failover group contains all the ports assigned to the broadcast domain.
Create a broadcast domain.
network port broadcast-domain create -ipspace ipspace1 -broadcast-domain -ipspace1 -mtu 1500 -ports node1:e0d,node1:e0e,node2:e0d,node2:e0e
Verify that the broadcast domain configuration is correct.
Verify the broadcast domain is correct:
network port broadcast-domain show
Verify the network port is correct:
network port show
Verify the failover group names and failover targets are correct:
network interface failover-groups show
