Considerations when transitioning from 7-Mode to clustered Data ONTAP

You must have the new MetroCluster configuration fully configured and operating before you use the transition tools to move data from a 7-Mode MetroCluster configuration to a Data ONTAP configuration. If the 7-Mode configuration uses Brocade 6510 switches, the new configuration can share the existing fabrics to reduce the hardware requirements.

If you have Brocade 6510 switches and plan on sharing the switch fabrics between the 7-Mode fabric MetroCluster and the MetroCluster running in clustered Data ONTAP, you must use the specific procedure for configuring the MetroCluster components.
