Netgroup configuration is transitioned only if the 7-Mode
/etc/netgroup file is less than 5 MB in size. UNIX users and groups are transitioned only if the total number of UNIX users and groups on the SVM do not exceed the limits for users and groups in ONTAP.
Considerations for netgroups
/etc/netgroup file on 7-Mode is greater than 5 MB, the netgroup configuration is not transitioned. You must perform one of the following actions to continue with the transition:
Exclude the transition of netgroups.
Move the netgroup configuration to NIS or LDAP servers before transition.
Considerations for UNIX users and groups
If the total number of transitioning UNIX users and groups exceed the limit of UNIX users and groups in ONTAP, the 7-Mode Transition Tool blocks the transition. You must perform one of the following actions to continue with the transition:
Exclude the transition of UNIX users and groups.
Move the UNIX users and groups to NIS or LDAP servers before transition.
