I have an 8.1 7mode 2240 system in my lab. Can someone point me to documentation on how to switch over to c mode? I dont have any data to migrate. I wasnt sure if it had to come from the factory in c mode or if i could wipe the config and start fresh in cluster mode.
Which version of ontap is currently running on the storage systems? If it is ONTAP 8x in 7 mode, you may directly convert to cluster mode. Please note that this procedure will wipe off all the data on the disks. If you have critical data on the system, you may have to follow proper migration procedures. From your post, what I understand is that you are planning a "CLEAN cmode install" meaning that there is no critical data involved? If so, please see the following KB article that describes the procedure.
