Considerations for transitioning of SnapLock Audit volumes

The 7-Mode Transition Tool supports the transition of SnapLock Audit volumes. The workflow to transition SnapLock Audit volumes is the same as the transition of SnapLock Compliance volumes.

After you transition audit volumes to the ONTAP, you must manually designate the transitioned audit volume as SnapLock Audit volume for the target SVM.

In ONTAP, the audit volumes are configured at an SVM level. In Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode, an audit volume serves as a consolidated repository for all of the volumes in the controller across the vFiler units.

SnapLock Audit volumes are a type of SnapLock Compliance volume. The transition of SnapLock Audit volumes is not supported if the target cluster is in a MetroCluster configuration.
