Prerequisites for transitioning NFS configurations

Contributors netapp-ivanad ntap-bmegan Download PDF of this page

NFS configurations are transitioned by the 7-Mode Transition Tool only when certain prerequisites are met on the 7-Mode system and the cluster. If any of the conditions are not met, the tool does not transition the configuration.

7-Mode prerequisites

  • NFS must be licensed.

  • If MultiStore is licensed, NFS must be enabled on all of the vFiler units.

  • NFS service must be running on the 7-Mode systems during transition.

    Even after client access is disconnected and you prepare to start the export phase, the service must be running on the 7-Mode systems.

  • If you want to transition in-memory export rules, you must add them to the /etc/exports file before transition.

    The 7-Mode Transition Tool transitions only the persistent export rules that are defined in the /etc/exports file.

Cluster prerequisites

  • NFS must be licensed.
