Displaying LIF information

You might have to view the information about a LIF in instances such as diagnosing basic problems with LIFs, finding out the routing group of a LIF. If you are a Vserver admin, you can view the information about the LIFs associated with the Vserver.

About this task

You might to have the view the information about a LIF in the following scenarios:

Step

  1. To view the LIF information, use the network interface show command.

    You can get all available information by specifying the -instance parameter or get only the required fields by specifying the fields parameter. If data for a field is not available, the field is listed as undef..

    Example

    The following example displays general information about all LIFs in a cluster:
