Would you help on this? We are investigating option to move to cDOT from 7-mode. We have currently unutilized 6480 which is currently running 7 mode but I am ok to wipe out everything and setup cDot there.
So here is what I need:
- cabling guide for 6480 for a switchless 2-node cluster, we have 8 10G Ethernet interfaces on each head
- installation instruction and step by step guide of latest cDOT on 6480
Thanks in advance
Good. Then follow https://kb.netapp.com/support/index?page=content&id=1015457&actp=SUBSCRIPTION to convert each node to C-Mode. You can actually use NetBoot (in that case it is pretty much irrelevant what version is currently installed), just make sure to update SP firmware and BIOS in advance to the latest release. Supported LAN ports usage is listed in HWU. Otherwise just follow Express Setup Guides for C-Mode. You probably won't find them for 62xx models, just adjust internal port indications according to HWU recommendations.
I do not see it was the case. As I said - I wanted to have greenfield/from the scratch deployment of old system.
It is resolved now. I modifed boot env, switched to cluster boot and wiped out the config. Thanks everybody.
