ONTAP 7-Mode Transition

Preparing the cluster for transitioning volume SnapMirror relationships


For transitioning 7-Mode volume SnapMirror relationships, you must add the SnapMirror license to the source and destination clusters. You must also create a cluster peer relationship between the clusters to which the primary and secondary volumes of the SnapMirror relationships are transitioned and create the SnapMirror schedules.

You must have recorded the SnapMirror schedules defined in the /etc/snapmirror.conf file of the 7-Mode secondary system.

  1. Add the SnapMirror license on both the source and destination clusters:

    system license add license_code

  2. From each cluster, create the cluster peer relationship.

  3. Create schedules on the secondary SVMs that match the schedules in the 7-Mode secondary system:

    job schedule cron create
