ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

network interface revert

Revert a logical interface to its home port

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.


The network interface revert command reverts a logical interface that is not currently on its home port to its home port, assuming that the home node and port are both operational. A logical interface’s home port is specified when the logical interface is created. Determine a logical interface’s home port by using the network interface show command.

When you revert a cluster logical interface, you must do so from the local node.
On some cloud platforms, this operation might perform changes to the external route tables.


-vserver <vserver> - Vserver Name

Use this parameter to specify the Vserver on which the logical interface to be reverted is located.

-lif <lif-name> - Logical Interface Name

Use this parameter to specify the logical interface that is to be reverted.

Logical interfaces for SAN protocols are always home. Thus, this command has no effect on such interfaces. The same applies to logical interfaces for NAS protocols that are already home.


The following example returns any logical interfaces that are not currently on their home ports to their home ports.

cluster1::> network interface revert -vserver * -lif *
