fis

Sep 12, 2016

The following operations can be performed on "fis":

add | rm | bind | unbind | show

add fis

Adds a failover interface set (FIS) to the NetScaler appliance. A FIS is a logical group of interfaces. In an HA configuration, using a FIS is a way to prevent failover by grouping interfaces so that, when one interface fails, other functioning interfaces are still available. A FIS can also be configured for the nodes of a NetScaler cluster.

Synopsys

add fis <name> [-ownerNode <positive_integer>]

Arguments

name

Name for the FIS to be created. Leading character must be a number or letter. Other characters allowed, after the first character, are @ _ - . (period) : (colon) # and space ( ). Note: In a cluster setup, the FIS name on each node must be unique.

ownerNode

ID of the cluster node for which you are creating the FIS. Can be configured only through the cluster IP address.

Default value: -1

Minimum value: 0

Maximum value: 31

rm fis

Removes an FIS from the NetScaler appliance. When an FIS is removed, its interfaces are marked as critical interfaces.

Synopsys

rm fis <name>

Arguments

name

Name of the FIS that you want to remove from the NetScaler appliance.

bind fis

Binds the specified interfaces to a FIS.

Synopsys

bind fis <name> <ifnum> ...

Arguments

name

The name of the FIS to which you want to bind interfaces.

ifnum

Interface to be bound to the FIS, specified in slot/port notation (for example, 1/3).

unbind fis

Unbinds the specified interfaces from a FIS. An unbound interface becomes a critical interface if it is enabled and HA MON is on.

Synopsys

unbind fis <name> <ifnum> ...

Arguments

name

Name of the FIS from which to unbind interfaces.

ifnum

Interfaces to unbind from the FIS, specified in slot/port notation (for example, 1/3). Use spaces to separate multiple entries.

show fis

Displays the configured FISs.

Synopsys

show fis [<name>]

Arguments

name

The name of the FIS configured on the appliance.

Outputs

ifaces

Interfaces to be bound to the FIS, in slot/port notation (for example, 1/3).

stateflag

Used internally for display.

ifnum

Interface to be bound to the FIS, specified in slot/port notation (for example, 1/3)

ownerNode

ID of the cluster node for which you are creating the FIS. Can be configured only through the cluster IP address.
