ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

volume transition-prepare-to-downgrade

Verifies that there are no volumes actively transitioning from 7-mode to clustered Data ONTAP, and configures the transition feature for downgrade.

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the advanced privilege level.


The volume transition-prepare-to-downgrade command is used to verify that a volume is not currently being transitioned from 7-Mode to clustered Data ONTAP. This check must be done before reverting or downgrading a node.



The following example executes the volume transition-inactive-verify command during active volume transitions.

cluster1::*> volume transition-prepare-to-downgrade

Error: command failed: Downgrade cannot proceed because one or more volumes are transitioning from 7-Mode to clustered Data ONTAP.

You must complete or cancel all transitions. View the transitioning volumes that are preventing the downgrade by using the (privilege: advanced) command "lun transition show -status active -fields vserver, volume".

To complete a transition, break the SnapMirror transition relationship using the command "snapmirror break -destination-path <destination-path>".

For detailed information about transitioning, refer to the "7-Mode Data Transition Using SnapMirror" guide.

To cancel a transition, contact technical support.
