Do you know if there is any migration document from Ontap GX to Ontap 8.0.1? We gotta Ontap 7 and GX installed in our environment and I found some official document to migrate from Ontap 7 to 8, but nothing about GX. Any idea?

There's an internal document for the upgrade process, but there's the following note in the 8.0 Cluster release notes:
'Customers upgrading from Data ONTAP GX 10.x must follow an assisted upgrade process. Contact your support representative before attempting to upgrade to Data ONTAP 8.0 Cluster-Mode'
While moving from Data ONTAP GX to Data ONTAP 8.0 Cluster-Mode requires a reboot, all data can be maintained.
Upgrade from 8.0 to 8.0.1 is covered in the Data ONTAP® 8.0.1 Cluster-Mode Upgrade Guide.
I hope this response has been helpful to you.
