ONTAP 7-Mode Transition

License requirements for transition


Before you transition a volume from 7-Mode to clustered Data ONTAP, you must ensure that SnapMirror is licensed on the 7-Mode storage system. If you are transitioning a 7-Mode volume SnapMirror relationship, SnapMirror licenses are also required on the source and destination clusters.

If SnapMirror is already licensed on your 7-Mode system, you can use the same license for transition. If you do not have the 7-Mode SnapMirror license, you can obtain a temporary SnapMirror license for transition from your sales representative.

Feature licenses that are enabled on the 7-Mode system must be added to the cluster. For information about obtaining feature licenses on the cluster, see the System Administration Reference.
