Hello Mohisina, 

 

There is no IMT or an upgrade advisory for a Cloud Volumes ONTAP upgrade. 

 

As mentioned earlier by David, upgrading an HA pair is nondisruptive and I/O is uninterrupted. During this nondisruptive upgrade process, each node is upgraded in tandem to continue serving I/O to clients. Whereas, When you upgrade a single-node system, the upgrade process takes the system offline for up to 25 minutes, during which I/O is interrupted.

 

With that being said, you can follow the below CVO Upgrade overview which acts like a guide to help you with performing the required prechecks, procedure to upgrade the CVO system from BlueXP and the commands to perform a basic health check of the system post upgrade:

CVO Upgrade Overview

 

Prechecks :

 

  1. Procedure to upgrade using BXP upgrade notification: click Here.
  2. For steps to upgrade from CVO image using http server or connector click Here.

 

Post upgrade health checks :

Run the below commands to verify the status of the nodes, aggregates etc., after the Cloud Volumes ONTAP upgrade.

Hi,

Cloud Manager has been renamed by BlueXP 🙂 I believe that you want to upgrade Cloud Volume ONTAP from 9.13.0 to 9.14.1. 

Generally there is no worries or additional checks required when upgrading from 9.13.1 to 9.14.1 but check against 3rd party vendor like Varonis or any backup software if you have so.

If you have an HA mod cluster then upgrade will be non disruptive (Only session will be broken which might have a minimal impact on client while browsing shares for example).

If you have a single instance then reboot will create a ~10-15 min downtime from my experience.
