primary (Address on Interface)


Hierarchy Level


Configure this address to be the primary address of the protocol on the interface. If the logical unit has more than one address, the primary address is used by default as the source address when packet transfer originates from the interface and the destination address does not indicate the subnet.


The edit logical-systems hierarchy is not available on QFabric systems.


For unicast traffic, the primary address is the lowest non-127 (in other words, non-loopback) preferred address on the unit.
