Hi there,

There is no data motion in 7-mode, it is only available in the cluster-mode.

Moreover, You need to use the professional services to do the head swap, if you don't have a full fledge knowledge how to, obviously it will be hell. Please go for professional services.

thank you,

There is: http://www.netapp.com/us/communities/tech-ontap/tot-data-motion-1102.html

Not particularly useful in this case though.

In 8.0.1 7-mode, it is partially supported which is most consumers use NFS and CIFS.

DataMotion for Volumes is designed to facilitate migration of any volume containing FC, FCoE, or iSCSI LUNs only. It does not support NFS or CIFS volumes.

thank you,
