I need to upgrade SMSP 6 to SMSP 8 - however in the release notes for version 8.0 it says you have to have NetApp help you migrate the data. Is this still a requirement? Is there not a whitepaper somewhere I can use to do this myself. If not, who exactly at NetApp do I contact? Just the normal tech support line?
Its more of a transition without the cDOT Transition Tool 1.3v.
