Copy-free transition project planning worksheets

You can use the copy-free transition planning worksheets to record information about node mapping, SVM mapping, volume mapping, and LIFs to transition. The worksheets are useful when creating a transition project by using the 7-Mode Transition Tool. You should be aware of the guidelines for completing the worksheets.

You can follow these guidelines to complete the worksheets:

  • Map each vFiler unit to an SVM.

    If there are no vFiler units in the 7-Mode controller, map the controller to a single SVM.

  • Record the 7-Mode volume name and the corresponding Data ONTAP volume name.

    The ONTAP volume name might be different from the 7-Mode volume name.

  • Identify the LIFs to be configured on each SVM.

    The IP addresses for the LIFs can either be existing on the 7-Mode system or can be new LIFs.

Node mapping

7-Mode controller Mapped cluster node

SVM and volume mapping

7-Mode controller vFiler unit or controller Mapped SVM 7-Mode volume SVM volume

LIF mapping (7-Mode IP addresses)

7-Mode controller vFiler unit or controller Mapped SVM 7-Mode IP address Netmask Default gateway Home node Home port

LIF mapping (new LIFs)

SVM New IP address Netmask Default gateway Home node Home port
