Split broadcast domains
Contributors Download PDF of this page
You can modify an existing broadcast domain by splitting it into two different broadcast domains, with each broadcast domain containing some of the original ports assigned to the original broadcast domain.
If the ports are in a failover group, all of the ports in a failover group must be split.
If the ports have LIFs associated with them, the LIFs cannot be part of a subnet’s ranges.
Split a broadcast domain into two broadcast domains:
network port broadcast-domain split -ipspace <ipspace_name> -broadcast-domain <broadcast_domain_name> -new-broadcast-domain <broadcast_domain_name> -ports <node:port,node:port>
ipspace_nameis the name of the IPspace where the broadcast domain resides.
-broadcast-domainis the name of the broadcast domain that will be split.
-new-broadcast-domainis the name of the new broadcast domain that will be created.
-portsis the node name and port to be added to the new broadcast domain.
