Customizing the transition of 7-Mode configurations

Contributors netapp-ivanad Download PDF of this page

When planning the transition of configurations from 7-Mode to ONTAP, you can customize the configuration transition in two ways. You can ignore or skip the transition of one or more configurations. You can consolidate the 7-Mode NFS export rules, and then reuse an existing NFS export policy and Snapshot policy on the target SVM.

The 7-Mode Transition Tool does not perform prechecks for the configuration that is excluded.

By default, all 7-Mode configurations are selected for transition.

It is a best practice to run the prechecks with all configurations first, and then exclude one or more configurations in the subsequent run of the prechecks. This helps you to understand which configurations are excluded from transition and which prechecks are skipped subsequently.

Steps
  1. From the Plan Configuration page, select the following options from the SVM Configuration pane:

    • For excluding the transition of configurations, clear the check box for those configurations.

    • For consolidating similar 7-Mode NFS export rules to a single export policy in ONTAP, which can then be applied to the transitioned volume or qtree, select the Consolidate NFS Export Policies on 7-Mode check box.

    • For reusing an existing NFS export policy on the SVM that matches the export policy that will be created by the tool, which can then be applied to the transitioned volumes or qtrees, select the Reuse Export Policies of SVM check box.

    • For consolidating similar 7-Mode Snapshot schedules to a single Snapshot policy in ONTAP, which can then be applied to the transitioned volume, select the Consolidate 7-Mode Snapshot Policies check box.

    • For reusing an existing Snapshot policy on the SVM that matches the Snapshot policy that will be created by the tool, which can then be applied to the transitioned volumes, select the Reuse Snapshot Policies of SVM check box.

  2. Click Save and go to Dashboard.
