How to Upgrade the netapp model 2552 7mode to cluster mode?
we are using Netapp 2552 - 7 mode we need to upgrade the cluster mode,
what are prerequiestes to take before doing the activity.
Already we are taken the all data backup. now the box is clear.
Is it required any separate liceances ?
Is it required take any configuration or liceanses backups?
Which is stiable C.mode verison for FAS2552 model?
Then you need cluster license. All other licenses are the same in 7-Mode and C-Mode, but you will need to re-enter them, so make sure to have license code(s) available. You will need to contact your NetApp representative how to obtain cluster license; it makes sense to also ask him about procedure to convert from 7-Mode.
No backup is needed, 7-Mode configuration is not compatible with C-Mode anyway. You will need to completely configure new system from the very beginning.
latest cDOT GA is 8.3.1 which is fine for the FAS2552 - to migrate from 7 mode to cDOT you should use the 7 Mode TransitionTool (7MTT)
1 build new cDOT cluster
2 install 7MTT on an admin server
3 migrate data using the 7MTT
you will need the docs for the 7MTT and the tool itself which you can get from the NetApp support site.
