how do I know if an aggregate is 64-bit or 32-bit, why 32-bit Snapshot got produced?


I have two questions and need your help with, CLI's preferred.


1. how do I tell if a aggreate is 64-bit or 32-bit,

2. why some of SVM created 32-snapshots, is this determined by SVM or aggregate?


cDOT, 8.2.1


Thanks for sharing!



run -node * aggr status  - make sure they all say 64-bit.  I thought cDOT was only 64bit.  


On one of the snapshots run -instance and paste back




as you can see below, the aggr is 64-bit, but the SS is 32-bit. It is required to disable 32-bit aggr when upgrade to 8.3. Again, how come 32-bit SS got produced, and by what?

The volume was transitioned from 7-mode, but the question is why SS is still shown as 7-mode and 32 bit

Snapshots migrated from 7-Mode likely cannot be converted - they are read-only by definition.



I know that.


My question is, once the volume got transitioned to cDOT, why those new SS produced based on the new policy on cDOT is still in 7-mode and 32-bit.


You showed what I wanted to confirm.. -instance shows 7-mode true, means exactly what the other poster said, made in 7-mode, 


Sorry, but what I dont' unerstand is that, based on the timestamp, the snapshot and also a lot of others which I did not list here have been created on cDOT filer, the most recent one was just yesterday.


So, why cDOT is still creating these SS?


Could you paste volume show -instance for the volume in question? Doing it in diag mode may show even more.
