ONTAP 7-Mode Transition

Solaris host remediation


If you are using the 7-Mode Transition Tool (7MTT) to move from ONTAP operating in 7-Mode to clustered ONTAP in a SAN environment, you must perform a series of steps on your Solaris host before and after transition to avoid transition complications.

The following scenarios are not supported for any transition workflow (support for copy-based or copy-free transitions):

  • Transition of SAN boot LUNs

    You can set up a SAN boot LUN to work in a Veritas dynamic multipathing (DMP) environment or a Solaris MPxIO environment by running the Solaris Host Utilities and using the FC protocol. The method you use to set up a SAN boot LUN can vary, depending on your volume manager and file system.

  • Solaris host clustering transition

  • Veritas configuration
