Hello all. We just ugraded from 8.0.5 to 8.1.4P7 in order to convert aggrs from 32-bit to 64-bit without having to add additional disks. Upon completion, the upgrade process automatically initiated the 64-bit space qualifying scanner. The 64-bit Aggregates Overview and Best Practices TR says to "Verify the prequalification scanner has finished running before triggering the 64-bit expansion.". But I haven't found anything indicating how to monitor the scanner status and verify that it's completed. I do see in the messages file however that a message is logged everytime the scanner finishes with a volume. Is there a better way to check the scanner status other than simply looking for a log message for each volume?

Thanks, but that doesn't provide the info I'm looking for. It tells me there's no upgrade in progess. It's correct because I haven't actually started any 64-bit upgrades yet. What I'm trying to get status on is the 64-bit space qualifying scanner, described here:
The scanner gets started automatically after upgading to 8.1. It determines whether your volumes have sufficient space for the aggregates to be converted to 64-bit. The scanner must complete a scan on all volumes before you can begin the 64-bit upgrade on aggregates.
