You must transition to one of the following ONTAP releases:

  • Using 7-Mode Transition Tool 3.3.3:

    • ONTAP 9.8 or earlier supported releases

  • Using 7-Mode Transition Tool 3.3.2:

    • ONTAP 9.7P2 or later 9.7 P release (earlier 9.7 releases are not supported)

    • ONTAP 9.6P7 or later 9.6 P release (earlier 9.6 releases are not supported)

    • ONTAP 9.5 or earlier ONTAP 9 release

    • Clustered Data ONTAP 8.1.4P4 or later 8.x release

  • Using 7-Mode Transition Tool 3.3.1:

    • ONTAP 9.5 or earlier ONTAP 9 release

    • Clustered Data ONTAP 8.1.4P4 or later 8.x release

Licensing requirements

Item Yes

SnapMirror license is enabled on the 7-Mode system

SnapMirror licenses are enabled on the primary and secondary clusters for transitioning a volume SnapMirror relationship

CIFS license is enabled on the cluster, if it is enabled on the 7-Mode system

NFS license is enabled on the cluster, if it is enabled on the 7-Mode system

iSCSI license is enabled on the cluster, if it is enabled on the 7-Mode system

FC license is enabled on the cluster, if it is enabled on the 7-Mode system

Other feature licenses, if available on the 7-Mode system, are added to the cluster

SnapMirror requirements on the 7-Mode system

Item Yes

SnapMirror license

Verify if one of the following is true:

  • The snapmirror.access option is set to all

  • The snapmirror.access option is set to the IP addresses of all the intercluster LIFs on the cluster

  • If the snapmirror.access option is set to legacy and the snapmirror.checkip.enable option is off, the SVM name is added to the /etc/snapmirror.allow file

  • If the snapmirror.access option is set to legacy and the snapmirror.checkip.enable option is on, the IP addresses of the intercluster LIFs are added to the /etc/snapmirror.allow file

Volume settings on the 7-Mode system

Item Yes

Volume is online

Volume is not restricted

The following volume options are disabled:

  • no_i2p

  • read_realloc

  • nvfail
