Before you can upgrade your cluster to Data ONTAP 8.3, you must remove all 32-bit data and disable the 32-bit capability. You must complete this task even if you have never created 32-bit aggregates on your cluster.
32-bit data can exist on your cluster even if you have expanded all of your aggregates to the 64-bit format.
Disabling the 32-bit capability (the last step of this task) should be done only when you are ready to install the new image and upgrade to the new version of Data ONTAP.
|If the command output indicated that you have...||Then...|
|Offline aggregates or volumes||Bring them online and repeat the previous step.
You can use the -force parameter to disable the 32-bit capability with offline volumes or aggregate, but you might not be able to bring them online again after you upgrade.
|32-bit data in one or more aggregates||Find and remove the 32-bit data and repeat the previous step.|
