Moving the data to the new drive shelves

Contributors netapp-aoife netapp-thomi netapp-ranuk

During the transition, you move data from the drive shelves in the MetroCluster FC configuration to the new MetroCluster IP configuration.

Before you begin

You should create new SAN LIFs on the destination or IP nodes and connect hosts prior to moving volumes to new the new aggregates.

  1. To resume automatic support case generation, send an Autosupport message to indicate that the maintenance is complete.

    1. Issue the following command: system node autosupport invoke -node * -type all -message MAINT=end

    2. Repeat the command on the partner cluster.

  2. Move the data volumes to aggregates on the new controllers, one volume at a time.

  3. Create SAN LIFs on the recently added nodes.

    Use the following procedure in Updating LUN paths for the new nodes.

  4. Check if there are any node locked licenses on the FC nodes, if there are, they need to be added to the newly added nodes.

    Use the following procedure in Adding node-locked licenses.

  5. Migrate the data LIFs.

    Use the procedure in Moving non-SAN data LIFs and cluster management LIFs to the new nodes but do not perform the last two steps to migrate cluster management LIFs.
