Moving the data to the new drive shelves

During the transition, you move data from the drive shelves in the MetroCluster FC configuration to the new MetroCluster IP configuration.

Procedure

  1. To resume automatic support case generation, send an Autosupport message to indicate that the maintenance is complete.
    1. Issue the following command: system node autosupport invoke -node * -type all -message MAINT=end
    2. Repeat the command on the partner cluster.
  2. Move the data volumes to aggregates on the new controllers, one volume at a time.
    Use the following section of the Controller Upgrade Express Guide.

    Creating an aggregate and moving volumes to the new nodes

  3. Create SAN LIFs on the recently added nodes.
    Use the following section of the Cluster Expansion Express Guide.

    Updating LUN paths for the new nodes

  4. Check if there are any node locked licenses on the FC nodes, if there are, they need to be added to the newly added nodes.
    Use the following section of the Cluster Expansion Express Guide.

    Adding node-locked licenses

  5. Migrate the data LIFs.
    Use the following section of the Controller Upgrade Express Guide but do not perform the last two steps to migrate cluster management LIFs.
