Set up NAS path failover with the CLI (ONTAP 9.0-9.7)


This workflow guides you through the networking configuration steps to set up NAS path failover for ONTAP 9.0 - 9.7. This workflow assumes the following:

  • You want to use NAS path failover best practices that simplify network configuration.

  • You want to use the CLI, not System Manager.

  • You are configuring networking on a new system running ONTAP 9.0 to 9.7.
