Revert a LIF to its home port

Download PDF of this page

You can revert a LIF to its home port after it fails over or is migrated to a different port either manually or automatically. If the home port of a particular LIF is unavailable, the LIF remains at its current port and is not reverted.

About this task
  • If you administratively bring the home port of a LIF to the up state before setting the automatic revert option, the LIF is not returned to the home port.

  • The node management LIF does not automatically revert unless the value of the "auto-revert" option is set to true.

  • You must ensure that the "auto-revert" option is enabled for the cluster LIFs to revert to their home ports.

Step

Revert a LIF to its home port manually or automatically:
