Transitioning 7-Mode volumes using SnapMirror

Contributors netapp-barbe netapp-ivanad

You can transition 7-Mode volumes in a NAS and SAN environment to clustered Data ONTAP volumes by using clustered Data ONTAP SnapMirror commands. You must then set up the protocols, services, and other configuration on the cluster after the transition is complete.

Recommendation: You should use the 7-Mode Transition Tool for copy-based transition to transition 7-Mode volumes because the tool provides prechecks to verify both 7-Mode and the cluster in every step of the migration process, which helps you to avoid many potential issues. The tool significantly simplifies the migration of all protocols, network, and services configurations along with the data migration.

This procedure provides the high-level tasks you have to perform for transition using SnapMirror.

After data migration finishes, you must perform the following tasks:
