ONTAP 9.14

to Japanese version

Delete a broadcast domain

If you no longer need a broadcast domain, you can delete it. This moves the ports associated with that broadcast domain to the "Default" IPspace.

Before you begin

There must be no subnets, network interfaces, or SVMs associated with the broadcast domain you want to delete.

About this task
  • The system-created "Cluster" broadcast domain cannot be deleted.

  • All failover groups related to the broadcast domain are removed when you delete the broadcast domain.

The procedure you follow depends on the interface that you use—​ONTAP System Manager or the CLI:

ONTAP System Manager

Beginning with ONTAP 9.12.0, you can use ONTAP System Manager to delete a broadcast domain

The delete option is not shown when the broadcast domain contains ports or is associated with a subnet.

  1. Select Network > Overview > Broadcast domain.

  2. Select kebob icon > Delete beside the broadcast domain you want to remove.


Use the CLI to delete a broadcast domain


Delete a broadcast domain:

network port broadcast-domain delete -broadcast-domain broadcast_domain_name [-ipspace ipspace_name]

The following command deletes broadcast domain Default-1 in IPspace ipspace1:

network port broadcast-domain delete -broadcast-domain Default-1 -ipspace ipspace1
