Types of vifs

You can create three different types of vifs on your storage system: single-mode vifs, static multimode vifs, and dynamic multimode vifs.

Each vif provides different levels of fault tolerance. Multimode vifs provide methods for load balancing network traffic.

Starting with Data ONTAP 7.3.1, IPv6 supports both single-mode and multimode vifs.
