Upgrade FAS2440-4 to cdot

Hello;

I have an FAS 240-4 (2 Controller)and i want to use it a an additional SnapVault target for our AFF200, therefor i need to upgrade from 8.2.5 7mode to cDot.
The Cluster Interconnect needs 10G network Modules, so it is best practice to remove one Controller.
Is there a  Guide for the upgrade process?
On the AFF we use 9.3P4, what is the highest cDot version supportet on the FAS 2440-4?
Is Snapmirror/SnapVault protection betwen cdot8 and cdot9?
Thanks, Thomas

Hi

 

indeed need 10GB card for interconnect. you can also indeed remove one node to avoid it. the highest version you can use on 22xx is 9.1Px and you should be able to snapvault to higher 9.X's
