separate DFM instance for cluster mode / 7 mode

MPERIYAK

We have a DFM 5.1 server monitoring our 7 mode systems today. We are planning to go to a new setup of cluster mode in the next couple of months. Questions

- Can this existing DFM server manage  the new cluster mode stuff

- If not then do we need a separate instance of DFM running for cluster mode alone.

-When we install the new DFM and choose cluster mode during the time of install , can this DFM manage the 7 mode controllers?

Thanks

Hi Murugappan,

Pls find responses to your question

- Can this existing DFM server manage  the new cluster mode stuff

No. Starting OCUM 5.1 it can only manage 7Mode or cluster Mode and not both.

- If not then do we need a separate instance of DFM running for cluster mode alone.

Yes, Install OCUM 5.1 in cluster Mode.

-When we install the new DFM and choose cluster mode during the time of install , can this DFM manage the 7 mode controllers?

No. As said earlier it can manage only either of this and not both.

Pls see the following getting started video on OCUM 5.1

Beginning with OnCommand Unified Manager 5.1, the modes are separate and require separate servers.  7-Mode and clustered Data ONTAP systems cannot be managed from a single server.
