We are considering going from OnTap 9.3 directly to 9.7 in a single upgrade. We have a AFF300, FAS2650 and FAS2620 systems. Has anyone gone this route and how did it go. I have never done multiple versions is a single upgrade.
See the first comment in https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMLP2492508/html/GUID-EDD52EFC-0BBC-43A7-A073-EA958FAA32AB.html
Its not for everyone IMHO. It is a double upgrade in the background. So you load the 9.5 code too.
whats you’re environment like? Lots of plug-ins? iSCSI or FC?
Very simple environment - CIFS shares for Windows and NFS shares for VMware.
Don’t do it!
Do the double upgrade
It’s supported that way
there are changes that happen between the big jumps
if you do I suspect a panic or more will be involved
go to 9.5 then 9.7p1!
