Transitioning nondisruptively from a MetroCluster FC to a MetroCluster IP configuration (ONTAP 9.8 and later)

Contributors netapp-martyh netapp-thomi netapp-ahibbard NetAppZacharyWambold

Beginning with ONTAP 9.8, nondisruptive transition of workloads and data from an existing four-node MetroCluster FC configuration to a new MetroCluster IP configuration is supported.

  • This procedure is supported on systems running ONTAP 9.8 and later.

  • This procedure is nondisruptive.

    The MetroCluster configuration can continue to serve data during the operation.

  • This procedure applies only to four-node MetroCluster FC configurations.

    If you have a two-node MetroCluster FC configuration, see Choosing your transition procedure.

  • You must meet all requirements and follow all steps in the procedure.
