Convert a namespace into a LUN

Contributors netapp-lisa thrisun

Beginning with ONTAP 9.11.1, you can use the ONTAP CLI to in-place convert an existing NVMe namespace to a LUN.

Before you start

  • Specified NVMe namespace should not have any existing maps to a Subsystem.

  • Namespace should not be part of a snapshot or on the destination side of SnapMirror relationship as a read-only namespace.

  • Since NVMe namespaces are only supported with specific platforms and network cards, this feature only works with specific hardware.

Steps
  1. You enter the following command to convert an NVMe namespace to a LUN:

    lun convert-from-namespace -vserver -namespace-path
