I am preparing for an upgrade. I know the instructions from NetApp says that IOM6 and IOM3 upgrades non-disruptively. In 7-Mode you can verify this in the options. How do I verify in CDOT version 8.3.2P2?

For 8.3, here's the download instructions:
Then you'll run a "storage download shelf" command from the node shell (one each per HA pair):
Hope that helps!

For this, you dont have to go anywhere other than the firmware download page :-)
Under, Method 1: Using an HTTP or FTP server
Step 4 have different instructions for
1, clustered Data ONTAP 8.0.x
2, clustered Data ONTAP 8.1.x and 8.2
3, clustered Data ONTAP 8.2.1 or later (that include ontap 9)
clustered Data ONTAP 8.2.1 or later The Alternate Control Path (ACP) interface initially used Ethernet-based network connectivity to perform various recovery tasks, such as expander resets and shelf power cycles. This feature was referred to as out-of-band (OOB) ACP. With ONTAP 9.0 and later, ACP uses available SAS data links to perform the same tasks. This feature is referred to as in-band ACP. Take note of these special cases of IOM6 running ACP FW 0208 or earlier, or any IOM3 with any FW: IOM3 does not support in-band ACP IOM6 does not support in-band ACP on FW 0208 or earlier; therefore, in this case: Confirm the cluster is in OOB (not in-band) ACP mode before attempting update. OOB ACP Ethernet cables must be in place Set ACP to OOB mode if not already configured See Knowledgebase article ID 1015915 for more info. To download the latest shelf firmware package to all of the nodes in the cluster from a web server, use this command: ::*> storage firmware download –node * –package-url http://<web-server>/path/all_shelf_fw.zip To download a specific shelf firmware file to all of the nodes in the cluster from a web server, use this command: ::*> storage firmware download –node * -package-url http://<web-server>/path/<shelf_type.fw_rev.SFW>.zip To download an individual ACPP firmware file to all of the nodes in the cluster from a web server, use this command: ::*> storage firmware download –node * -package-url http://<web-server>/path/<ACPP_type.fw_rev.AFW>.zip
Hope this help.

Thanks for the reply but nowhere in there tells me what to run in CDOT to verify that it is configured for non-disruptive shelf fw upgrade.

Sorry didn't understand your question 1st time..
According to this bug report, http://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/cgi-bin/bol?Type=Detail&Display=396599
And this documentation page https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMM1238888/html/rel_notes/concept/c_oc_rn_cau-upg-shelf-fw-ndu-option.html
The options "shelf.fw.ndu.enable" is only for AT-FCX disk shelf.
This options is not available in 8.3 clustered Data ONTAP.
AT-FCX modules can only be upgraded in a nondisruptive manner if the storage system meets the following configuration requirements:
