Removing a NIC from the node on ONTAP 9.7 or earlier

Contributors

This topic applies to ONTAP 9.7 or earlier. You might have to remove a faulty NIC from its slot or move the NIC to another slot for maintenance purposes.

Before you begin
  • All LIFs hosted on the NIC ports must have been migrated or deleted.

  • None of the NIC ports can be the home ports of any LIFs.

  • You must have advanced privileges to delete the ports from a NIC.

Steps
  1. Delete the ports from the NIC:

    network port delete

  2. Verify that the ports have been deleted:

    network port show

  3. Repeat step 1, if the output of the network port show command still shows the deleted port.
