Upgrade notes

Read through these notes to learn more about upgrading to this release.

How to upgrade

Upgrades of Cloud Volumes ONTAP must be completed from BlueXP. You should not upgrade Cloud Volumes ONTAP by using System Manager or the CLI. Doing so can impact system stability.

Supported upgrade path

You can upgrade to Cloud Volumes ONTAP 9.14.1 from 9.13.1 and 9.14.0 releases. BlueXP will prompt you to upgrade eligible Cloud Volumes ONTAP systems to this release.

Required version of the Connector

The BlueXP Connector must be running version 3.9.27 or later to deploy new Cloud Volumes ONTAP 9.14.1 systems and to upgrade existing systems to 9.14.1.

Tip Automatic upgrades of the Connector are enabled by default so you should be running the latest version.

Downtime

  • The upgrade of a single node system takes the system offline for up to 25 minutes, during which I/O is interrupted.

  • Upgrading an HA pair is nondisruptive and I/O is uninterrupted. During this nondisruptive upgrade process, each node is upgraded in tandem to continue serving I/O to clients.

c4, m4, and r4 instances no longer supported

In AWS, the c4, m4, and r4 EC2 instance types are no longer supported with Cloud Volumes ONTAP. If you have an existing system that's running on a c4, m4, or r4 instance type, you must change to an instance type in the c5, m5, or r5 instance family. You can't upgrade to this release until you change the instance type.

Refer to NetApp Support to learn more about the end of availability and support for these instance types.
