ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

system bridge options modify

Enable or disable configurable options for all bridges

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


The system bridge options modify command alters the value of configurable options which affect all the ATTO FibreBridges in the cluster configuration.


-option-name <text> - Option Name

The options supported are:

  • enable.automatic.addition

Allowable values: {true, false}

The enable.automatic.addition option controls whether or not ATTO FibreBridge 7500N and FibreBridge 7600N bridges are automatically added for in-band monitoring by the Fabric Health Monitor.

If set to true, the feature is enabled and all ATTO FibreBridge 7500N and FibreBridge 7600N bridges in the cluster will automatically be added for in-band monitoring by the Fabric Health Monitor. This is the preferred and default value.

If set to false, the feature is disabled and ATTO bridges will not automatically be added for monitoring. This value should only be used if you do not want to monitor the bridges at all, or if you want them to be monitored via SNMP.

The ATTO FibreBridge 6500N does not have the capability to be monitored by in-band management, so this option does not apply to the 6500N.

Note that this command is cluster-specific. To affect both clusters of a MetroCluster system, the command must be executed once on each cluster of the MetroCluster system.

[-option-value <text>] - Option Value

This parameter provides the value for each option. Allowable values for each option are specified in the option description above.


The following example sets the enable.automatic.addition option to true:

siteA::*> system bridge options modify -option-name enable.automatic.addition -option-value true
