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

You can collect and assess information about the controllers and hosts by using either the 7-Mode Transition Tool or the Inventory Collect Tool, depending on the security regulations in your environment.

  • The 7-Mode Transition Tool collects inventory information about controller and hosts by adding the systems or by using the inventory report generated by the Inventory Collect Tool.

    The 7-Mode Transition Tool then assesses inventory information and creates the transition assessment report.

  • You must be aware of the following considerations when performing transition assessment:

    • You should not perform both assessment and migration operations simultaneously on a controller.

    • You should avoid performing assessment operations on active storage controllers during peak hours.
