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


The network test-link start-server command starts the server side of the network test-link test on the designated node.

Only one server at a time can be running for the network test-link command on a given node. If the network test-link start-server command is issued and a server is already running on the node, then the command is ignored, and the existing server continues to run.

The server started is listening on port 5201.


-node {<nodename>|local} - Node Name

Use this parameter to specify the node where the server is to be started.


The following example starts a server:
