Relocate non-root aggregates and NAS data LIFs from node2 to node3

Before you can replace node2 with node4, you must relocate the non-root aggregates that are owned by node2 to node3.
After the post-checks are completed from the previous stage, the resource release for node2 starts automatically. The non-root aggregates and non-SAN data LIFs are migrated from node2 to node3.
Remote LIFs handle traffic to SAN LUNs during the upgrade procedure. Moving SAN LIFs is not necessary for cluster or service health during the upgrade.
After the aggregates and LIFs are migrated, the operation is paused for verification purposes. At this stage, you must verify whether or not all the non-root aggregates and non-SAN data LIFs are migrated to node3.
|The home owner for the aggregates and LIFs are not modified; only the current owner is modified.|
Verify that all the non-root aggregates are online and their state on node3 by using the following command:
storage aggregate show -node node3 -state online -root false
The following example shows that the non-root aggregates on node2 are online:
cluster::> storage aggregate show -node node3 state online -root false Aggregate Size Available Used% State #Vols Nodes RAID Status ---------- --------- --------- ------ ----- ----- ------ ------- ------ aggr_1 744.9GB 744.8GB 0% online 5 node2 raid_dp normal aggr_2 825.0GB 825.0GB 0% online 1 node2 raid_dp normal 2 entries were displayed.
If the aggregates have gone offline or become foreign on node3, bring them online by using the following command on node3, once for each aggregate:
storage aggregate online -aggregate <aggr_name>
Verify that all the volumes are online on node3 by using the following command on node3 and examining its output:
volume show -node node3 -state offline
If any volumes are offline on node3, bring them online by using the following command on node3, once for each volume:
volume online -vserver <vserver-name> -volume <volume-name>
<vserver-name>to use with this command is found in the output of the previous
Verify that the LIFs have been moved to the correct ports and have a status of
up. If any LIFs are down, set the administrative status of the LIFs to
upby entering the following command, once for each LIF:
network interface modify -vserver <vserver_name> - lif <LIF_name> -home-node <nodename> - status-admin up
If the ports currently hosting data LIFs will not exist on the new hardware, remove them from the broadcast domain by using the following command:
network port broadcast-domain remove-ports
Verify that there are no data LIFs remaining on node2 by using the following command and examining the output:
network interface show - curr-node <node2> -role data
