Display LIF failover targets

Contributors

You might have to check whether the failover policies and the failover groups of a LIF are configured correctly. To prevent misconfiguration of the failover rules, you can display the failover targets for a single LIF or for all LIFs.

About this task

Displaying LIF failover targets enables you to check for the following:

  • Whether the LIFs are configured with the correct failover group and failover policy

  • Whether the resulting list of failover target ports is appropriate for each LIF

  • Whether the failover target of a data LIF is not a management port (e0M)

Step

Display the failover targets of a LIF by using the failover option of the network interface show command.

The following command displays information about the failover targets for all LIFs in a two-node cluster. The Failover Targets row shows the (prioritized) list of node-port combinations for a given LIF.
