You should be aware of the versions of Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode that are supported for transitioning to clustered Data ONTAP 8.3 or later.

If the 7-Mode system has only 64-bit aggregates and volumes, you can transition volumes from systems running the following 7-Mode versions to clustered Data ONTAP 8.3 or later:

  • Data ONTAP 8.0

  • Data ONTAP 8.0.1

  • Data ONTAP 8.0.2

  • Data ONTAP 8.0.3

  • Data ONTAP 8.0.4

  • Data ONTAP 8.0.5

  • Data ONTAP 8.1

  • Data ONTAP 8.1.2

  • Data ONTAP 8.1.3

  • Data ONTAP 8.1.4

  • Data ONTAP 8.2

  • Data ONTAP 8.2.1

  • Data ONTAP 8.2.2

  • Data ONTAP 8.2.3

  • Data ONTAP 8.2.4

  • Data ONTAP 8.2.5

If the 7-Mode system is running Data ONTAP 8.0.x, 8.1.x, or 8.2 and has 32-bit aggregates or volumes with 32-bit Snapshot copies, you must upgrade to 8.1.4 P4 or 8.2.1. After upgrading, you must expand the 32-bit aggregates to 64-bit, and then find and remove any 32-bit data.

You must upgrade the following 7-Mode versions to Data ONTAP 8.1.4 P4 before transitioning to clustered Data ONTAP 8.3 or later:

  • Data ONTAP 7.3.3

  • Data ONTAP 7.3.4

  • Data ONTAP 7.3.5

  • Data ONTAP 7.3.6

  • Data ONTAP 7.3.7
