There are specific Data ONTAP commands for managing cluster peer operations.
|If you want to...||Use this command...|
|Create an authenticated cluster peer relationship||cluster peer create
This creates an authenticated cluster peer relationship by default. If you want to create an unauthenticated cluster peer relationship, you use this command with the -no-authentication parameter and unauthenticated cluster peer relationships must also be allowed by the cluster peer policy.
|Create an authenticated cluster peer relationship with an extended authentication offer||cluster peer create with the -offer-expiration parameter.
This is useful if the second cluster in the relationship cannot be authenticated in the default time of one hour.
|Create an unauthenticated cluster peer relationship||cluster peer create with the -no-authentication parameter.
Unauthenticated cluster peer relationships must also be allowed by the cluster peer policy.
|Delete a cluster peer relationship||cluster peer delete|
|Modify a cluster peer relationship||cluster peer modify|
|Initiate an intercluster connectivity test||cluster peer ping|
|Display information about the cluster peer relationship||cluster peer show|
|Display TCP connection information for a cluster peer||cluster peer connection show|
|Display health information of the nodes in a cluster peer relationship from the local cluster perspective||cluster peer health show|
|Display information about outstanding authentication offers to peer clusters||cluster peer offer show|
|Disable an existing cluster peer relationship||cluster peer modify with the -auth-status-admin parameter set to revoked.|
|Update a cluster peer relationship to use authentication with a different passphrase||cluster peer modify with the -auth-status-admin parameter set to use-authentication.
You can use this command to perform one of the following tasks:
|Reestablish a disabled cluster peer relationship with no-authentication||cluster peer modify with the -auth-status-admin parameter set to no-authentication.|
|Modify an outstanding authentication offer to a peer cluster||cluster peer offer modify
with the -offer-expiration parameter.
You can change when the authentication offer expires if you determine that there is not enough time to authenticate the cluster peer relationship before the offer expires.
|Cancel an outstanding authentication offer to a peer cluster||cluster peer offer cancel|
|Display whether unauthenticated cluster peer relationships can exist and what the minimum passphrase character length is||cluster peer policy show|
|Modify whether unauthenticated cluster peer relationships can exist and change the minimum passphrase character length||cluster peer policy modify|
