Considerations for transitioning DNS, NIS, and LDAP configurations

You should be aware of how the DNS, NIS, and LDAP configurations in Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode are transitioned and applied in ONTAP.

Considerations for DNS transition

For DNS configurations, a maximum of six domain names and three name servers per SVM are supported in ONTAP. If the unique number of domain names or name servers across 7-Mode systems and the target SVM exceed the supported limit, the 7-Mode Transition Tool reports a blocking error. To continue with the transition, you should ignore the transition of the DNS configuration from the tool.

Note: If you ignore the transition of the DNS configuration, you must manually configure DNS on the target SVM.
