Capabilities and restrictions of transitioned LUNs

Contributors

LUNs that have been transitioned from Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode to ONTAP have certain capabilities and restrictions that affect the way the LUNs can be managed.

You can do the following with transitioned LUNs:

  • View the LUN using the lun show command

  • View the inventory of LUNs transitioned from the 7-Mode volume using the transition 7-mode show command

  • Restore a volume from a 7-Mode Snapshot copy

    Restoring the volume transitions all of the LUNs captured in the Snapshot copy

  • Restore a single LUN from a 7-Mode Snapshot copy using the snapshot restore-file command

  • Create a clone of a LUN in a 7-Mode Snapshot copy

  • Restore a range of blocks from a LUN captured in a 7-Mode Snapshot copy

  • Create a FlexClone of the volume using a 7-Mode Snapshot copy

You cannot do the following with transitioned LUNs:

  • Access Snapshot copy-backed LUN clones captured in the volume
