Use the rmportip command to remove an internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) Internet Protocol (IP) address from a node Ethernet port.


rmportip [ -failover ] [ -ip_6 ] -node { node_name | node_id } port_id


(Optional) Specifies that the failover IP address information is removed for the specified port.
(Optional) Specifies that the Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) address is removed for the specified port. If this parameter is not used, the Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) address is removed by default.
-nodenode_name | node_id
(Required) Specifies the node with the Ethernet port that the IP address is being removed from.
(Required) Specifies which port (1, 2, 3, or 4) to apply changes to.


This command removes an IPv4 or IPv6 address from an Ethernet port of a node.

Before you unconfigure an IP from a source Ethernet port, the system checks whether any sessions are established from the selected port to any back-end iSCSI controller. You must remove sessions to the back-end iSCSI controller by using the command before you attempt to unconfigure the port. When the last IP (IPv4 or IPv6) address on a port is removed, the host port group ID that is associated with an iSCSI port is removed.
