ONTAP 7-Mode Transition

Transitioning a MetroCluster configuration that failed due to switchover or switchback


Transition operations, such as transition prepare, start, pause, resume, or complete, fail during a MetroCluster switchover or after a MetroCluster switchback. You must then manually reestablish the SnapMirror relationships to resume transition.

  1. Wait for the switchback to complete.

  2. From the cluster CLI, use the snapmirror create command to reestablish the SnapMirror relationships between the 7-Mode volumes and clustered Data ONTAP volumes that were part of the transition.

  3. From the 7-Mode Transition Tool, rerun the transition operation.

    Data copy operations start when the next schedule becomes active.
