How to interpret the clustered Data ONTAP commands, options, and configuration files maps for 7-Mode administrators

If you are moving from Data ONTAP running in 7-Mode to clustered Data ONTAP, you might find it handy to refer to the command maps, which show the clustered Data ONTAP equivalents of 7-Mode commands, options, and configuration files.

What mapping information is included

The Command Map for 7-Mode Administrators includes the following mappings of 7-Mode commands, options, and configuration files to their clustered Data ONTAP equivalents:

How to interpret 7-Mode-compatible shortcut commands

Although the Data ONTAP command-line interface (CLI) is significantly reorganized for cluster operations, many of the commands have 7-Mode-compatible shortcut versions that require no change to scripts or other automated tasks. These shortcut versions are listed first and in bold in the tables here. Shortcut versions that are not 7-Mode-compatible are listed next, followed by the full, long-form version of the commands:

7-Mode command Clustered Data ONTAP command
aggr add aggr add

aggr add-disks

storage aggregate add-disks

If no bold shortcut is listed, a 7-Mode-compatible version is not available. Not all forms of the commands are shown in the table. The CLI is extremely flexible, allowing multiple abbreviated forms.

Understanding the different clustered Data ONTAP shells for CLI commands

A cluster has three different shells for CLI commands:

Switching to nodeshell

When you see a 7-Mode-compatible shortcut version of a nodeshell command, it is assumed that you are running the command from the nodeshell. To switch to the nodeshell, enter the following:

system node run -node {nodename|local}

Other forms of the nodeshell command must be run from the clustershell.
