Yes, you can (hwu.netapp.com).

 

just heads up - it's not an upgrade- its require to reinstall. and you will need cluster mode licenses.

 

good luck

Hi,

 

Yes, I know that I need reinstall whole Ontapp. but tell me if the Advanced Partitioning (AP) is available immediately after install cluster mode or I need do something during Install to initialize this excellent thing ? 

 

I know that Advanced partitionig isn't available on FAS80XX. 

 

The system during installation detect hardware version and use AP or not ?

 

Thanks

Hi, 

Boot into maintenance mode from the boot menu and unassign all drives from each node

Then Reboot each node, and then choose option 4 – wipeconfig.

Once the wipe is finished, the system will use ADP on the internal drives and be ready to setup.

Adding a note here.

The system must be running Data ONTAP 8.3 or later.
