ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

vserver iscsi isns modify

Modify the iSNS service for the Vserver

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


This command modifies the configuration of an iSNS service.

Modifications take effect immediately after you execute the command.


-vserver <Vserver Name> - Vserver Name

Specifies the Vserver for the iSNS service that you want to modify.

[-address <IP Address>] - iSNS Server IP Address

Specifies the IP address of the iSNS server. Both IPv4 and IPv6 address families are supported. The address family must be the same as that of the vserver management LIF.

A default route must exist for the specified vserver. To create a route, use the network routing-groups route create command. To view existing routes, use the network routing-groups route show command.
[-status-admin {down|up}] - Administrative Status

Specifies the administrative status of the iSNS service of a Vserver. If you set this parameter to up, the iSNS service starts for the Vserver, and registers with the configured iSNS server. If you set this parameter to down, the Vserver loses its ability to register with the iSNS server and to be discovered by iSNS clients.

[-force <true>] - Force

vserver iscsi isns modify fails to modify the iSNS server address if vserver management LIF is not configured. When you set this option to "true," you can modify the iSNS service on a Vserver even if the vserver does not have a vserver management LIF.


cluster1::> iscsi isns modify -vserver vs_1 -status-admin up

Modifies the status-admin of the iSNS service for Vserver vs_1 to up.
