Revert a node to a previous release of Data ONTAP

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the advanced privilege level.


The system node revert-to command reverts a node's cluster configuration to the given version. After the system node revert-to command has finished, the revert_to command must be run from the nodeshell. The revert_to command reverts the filesystem on individual nodes to the target release. Before running revert-to in the cluster shell, the target release must be installed on the node.


-node {<nodename>|local} - Node

Specifies the node that is to be reverted. The value local specifies the current node.

-version <revert version> - Data ONTAP Version

Specifies the version of Data ONTAP to which the node is to be reverted.

[-check-only <true>] - Capability Check

If set to true , this parameter specifies that the cluster configuration revert should perform checks to verify all of the preconditions necessary for revert-to to complete successfully. Setting the parameter to true does not run through the actual revert process. By default this option is set to false .


The command in the following example reverts cluster configuration of a node named node1 to Data ONTAP version 9.2

cluster1::*> system node revert-to -node node1 -version 9.2
