ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

system bridge options show

Show state of configurable options for all bridges

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


The system bridge options show command displays the value of configurable options which apply to all ATTO FibreBridges in the cluster configuration. If the user specifies the command without parameters, the output displays the current value of all the configurable options supported by the cluster.


{ [-fields <fieldname>,…​]

If you specify the -fields <fieldname>, …​ parameter, the command output also includes the specified field or fields. You can use '-fields ?' to display the fields to specify.

| [-instance ] }

If you specify the -instance parameter, the command displays detailed information about all fields.

[-option-name <text>] - Option Name

The options supported are:

  • enable.automatic.addition

Allowable values {true, false}.

This option controls whether or not bridges are automatically added for in-band monitoring by the Fabric Health Monitor.

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

If set to false, the feature is disabled and ATTO FibreBridges will not be automatically added for monitoring. They can be left unmonitored, or manually added for SNMP monitoring.

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

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

The option-value parameter specifies the value of the option. Allowable values are described for each option supported in the list above.


The following example displays the current setting of the bridge options:

siteA::*> system bridge options show
  Option Name                 Option Value      Option Hint
  --------------------------  ----------------  --------------------------------
  enable.automatic.addition   true              {true,false} - enable auto-add
