Before you transition AIX host data LUNs with file systems from Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode to clustered Data ONTAP, you must gather information you need for the transition process.

  1. On the 7-Mode controller, identify the name of the LUN to be transitioned:

    lun show

  2. On the host, locate the SCSI device name for the LUN:

    sanlun lun show

    The SCSI device name is located in the device filename column.

  3. List and record the physical volumes used by the volume group configured in the data LUNs to be transitioned:

    lsvg -p vg_name

  4. List and record the logical volumes used by the volume group:

    lsvg -l vg_name
