You must gather certain information to successfully upgrade the original nodes. The information includes node IDs, port and LIF details, licensing keys, and IP addresses.

You can use the following worksheet to record information for use later in the procedure:

Information needed When collected When used Collected Information

Model, system ID, serial number of original nodes

Stage 1: Prepare the nodes for the upgrade

Stage 3: Install and boot node3

Stage 5: Install and boot node4

Stage 6: Decommission the old system

Shelf and disk information, flash storage details, memory, NVRAM, and adapter cards on original nodes

Stage 1: Preparing the nodes for the upgrade

Throughout the procedure

Online aggregates and volumes on original nodes

Stage 1: Prepare the nodes for the upgrade

Throughout the procedure to verify that aggregates and volumes remain online except during brief relocation

Output of commands network port vlan show and network port ifgrp show

Stage 1: Prepare the nodes for the upgrade

Stage 3: Map ports from node1 to node3

Stage 5: Map ports from node2 to node4

(SAN environments only) Default configuration of FC ports

Topology for V-Series systems or systems with FlexArray Virtualization software

Stage 1: Prepare the nodes for the upgrade

Stage 3: Install and boot node3

Stage 5: Install and boot node4
