Upgrading ONTAP Cloud to the latest version

You can upgrade to the latest version of ONTAP Cloud directly from Cloud Manager. Cloud Manager notifies you when a new version is available.

Before you begin

Cloud Manager operations such as volume or aggregate creation must not be in progress for the ONTAP Cloud system.
