Creating a Logical Port

Creating a Logical Port

This operation enables you to create a logical port for managing and accessing file based on Ethernet ports, bond ports, or VLANs.

Precautions

The number of logical ports created for each controller is recommended not more than 64. If the number exceeds 64 and a large number of ports do not work properly, logical ports drift towards the small number of ports available. As a result, service performance deteriorates.

Procedure

  1. Log in to DeviceManager.
  2. Choose Provisioning > Port > Logical Ports.
  3. Click Create.

    The Create Logical Port dialog box is displayed.

  4. In the Create Logical Port dialog box, configure related parameters.

    Table 4-19 describes related parameters.

    Table 4-19  Logical port parameters

    Parameter

    Description

    Value

    Name

    Name of the logical port.

    The name must meet the following requirements so that the logical port is available to compatible applications:
    • The name must be unique.
    • The name can contain only letters, digits, underscores (_), periods (.), and hyphens (-).
    • The name contains 1 to 31 characters.

    [Example]

    lif01

    IP Address Type

    IP address type of the logical port, including IPv4 or IPv6.

    [Example]

    IPv4

    IPv4 Address

    IPv4 address of the logical port.

    [Example]

    192.168.100.11

    Subnet Mask

    IPv4 subnet mask of the logical port.

    [Example]

    255.255.255.0

    IPv4 Gateway

    IPv4 gateway of the logical port.

    [Example]

    192.168.100.1

    IPv6 Address

    IPv6 address of the logical port.

    [Example]

    fc00::1234

    Prefix

    IPv6 prefix length of the logical port.

    [Example]

    64

    IPv6 Gateway

    IPv6 gateway of the logical port.

    [Example]

    fc00::1

    Primary Port

    Port to which the logical port belongs, including the Ethernet port, bond port, and VLAN.
    NOTE:

    If the primary port fails, services are failed over to other normal ports within the group by default.

    [Example]

    None

    IP Address Failover

    After IP address failover is enabled, services are failed over to other normal ports within the group by default if the primary port fails. However, the IP address used by services remains unchanged.

    NOTE:

    Shares of file systems do not support the multipathing mode. IP address failover is used to improve reliability of links.

    [Example]

    Enabled

    Failback Mode

    Mode in which services fail back to the primary port after the primary port is recovered. The mode can be manual or automatic.
    NOTE:
    • If Failback Mode is Manual, ensure that the link to the primary port is normal before the failback. Services will manually fail back to the primary port only when the link to the primary port keeps normal for over five minutes.
    • If Failback Mode is Automatic, ensure that the link to the primary port is normal before the failback. Services will auto fail back to the primary port only when the link to the primary port keeps normal for over five minutes.

    [Example]

    Automatic

    Activate Now

    To activate the logical port immediately.

    [Example]

    Enable

  5. Click OK.

    The Success dialog box is displayed indicating that the logical port has been successfully created.

  6. Click OK.
