Selecting LIFs for transition

Contributors netapp-ivanad Download PDF of this page

You can optionally specify the LIFs that you want to configure on the SVMs after transition. These LIFs can be existing IP addresses on the 7-Mode systems or they can be new LIFs. Only NAS LIFs are transitioned. FC and iSCSI LIFs must be manually configured before the SVM provision phase.

The LIFs that are selected for transition are configured on the SVMs during the SVM provision phase in the following ways:

  • Existing 7-Mode IP addresses that are selected for transition are created in the administrative down state.

    These IP addresses can continue to serve data in 7-Mode until the cutover starts. During the import phase, these IP addresses are configured in the administrative up state.

  • New IP addresses are created in the administrative up state.

    You can use these LIFs to test the connectivity of the SVMs to the name servers after the SVM provision phase.

Steps
  1. In the LIF configuration tab, choose one of the following options:

    If you want to transition…​ Then…​

    An existing IP address on the 7-Mode system

    1. Click Select 7-Mode LIF.

    2. Select the IP address that you want to transition, and then specify the target SVM and other network parameters.

    3. Click Save.

    A new IP address

    1. Click Add New LIF.

    2. Specify the IP address that you want to configure, the target SVM, and other network parameters.

    3. Click Save.

    Note The target ports must be in the same IPspace as the target SVM.
  2. Click Next.

    The Plan Configuration tab is displayed.
