Prepare for the upgrade when moving storage
Before upgrading by moving storage, you must gather license information from the original nodes, plan network configuration, record the system IDs, and prepare the files needed for netboot.
Display and record license information from the original nodes, node1 and node2:
system license show
If you use Storage Encryption on the node1/node2 HA pair and the new nodes have encryption-enabled disks, make sure that the original nodes' disks are correctly keyed:

Record the names and ports of failover groups that are not clusterwide.
network port vlan show -node <node_name>
Record each network port and VLAN ID pairing.

Record the names of the interface groups and the ports assigned to them.

Obtain information about the default cluster ports, data ports, and node management ports for each new node that you are upgrading to: NetApp Hardware Universe
After you install the new nodes, you might need to netboot to ensure the new nodes are running the same version of ONTAP as the original nodes. The term netboot means you are booting from an ONTAP image stored on a remote server. When preparing for netboot, you must put a copy of the ONTAP 9 boot image onto a web server that the system can access.
Access the NetApp Support Site to download the files used for performing the netboot of the system.
Download the appropriate ONTAP software from the software download section of the NetApp Support Site and store the
<ontap_version>_image.tgzfile on a web-accessible directory.
Change to the web-accessible directory and verify that the files you need are available.
FAS2200, FAS2500, FAS3200, FAS6200, FAS/AFF8000 series systems
Extract the contents of the
<ontap_version>_image.tgzfile to the target directory:
tar -zxvf <ontap_version>_image.tgz
Note: If you are extracting the contents on Windows, use 7-Zip or WinRAR to extract the netboot image.
Your directory listing should contain a netboot folder with a kernel file:
All other systems
Your directory listing should contain the following file:
You do not need to extract the contents of the
You will use information in the directory to set up the new nodes.
