1. Can I upgrade Data Ontap 7-mode [Release 7.3.3P2] to 7-mode 8.1.4, Directly or I need to first go to 7.3.7 ?

B'cos there is nothing runing on 7.3.3P2, even if I wipe out and install 8.0 , it should be alright, but I am concerend about license.
2. Will I need a separte license keys for 8.0 ?

 

Many thanks,

-Ashwin

Yes, it should be possible, but you are advised to check release notes. Anyway, update to 7.3.7 takes 15 minutes and does not harm. No new licenses are required for 8.1.
