Stage 6 overview

Contributors netapp-pcarriga

During Stage 6, you confirm that the new nodes are set up correctly and, if the new nodes are encryption-enabled, you configure and set up Storage Encryption or NetApp Volume Encryption. You should also decommission the old nodes and resume the SnapMirror operations.

MetroCluster FC configuration

In a MetroCluster FC configuration, you must replace the disaster recovery/failover site nodes as soon as possible. Mismatch in controller models within a MetroCluster is not supported because controller model mismatch can cause disaster recovery mirroring to go offline. Use the -skip-metrocluster-check true command to bypass MetroCluster checks when you are replacing nodes at the second site.
