To facilitate optimal east-west routing while supporting transparent virtual machine mobility, leaf switches are assigned the same gateway IP and MAC address for each locally defined subnet. Having the same gateway IP and MAC address helps ensure a default gateway presence across all leaf switches. It removes the suboptimal routing inefficiencies associated with separate centralized gateways.

This command allows you to modify a subnet.

Syntax   subnet-modify


name name-string

Specify the name for the subnet.

scope local|cluster|fabric

Specify the scope of the subnet.

Defaults   None

Access   Network Administrator

History   Command introduced in Version 3.0.0.

Usage   Use this command to modify a subnet configuration.

Examples  To modify the subnet, subnet-one, and change the scope to local, use the following syntax:

CLI network-admin@switch > subnet-modify name subnet-one scope local
