You must be aware of certain considerations when transitioning 7-Mode IP addresses to storage virtual machines (SVMs) in ONTAP.

  • You can transition existing 7-Mode IP addresses or specify new IP addresses to be configured on the SVM by using the 7-Mode Transition Tool.

    • Existing 7-Mode IP addresses are created on the SVM in the administrative down state in the apply configuration (precutover) phase.

    • New IP addresses are created on the SVM in the administrative up state in the apply configuration (precutover) phase.

  • IPv6 addresses cannot be transitioned and must be manually configured after the transition.

  • iSCSI and FC LIFs are not transitioned and must be manually configured after the transition.
