- Clustered Data ONTAP 8.3
- 7-Mode Transition Tool
Copy Free Transition (CFT) used to transition shelves from source Data ONTAP 7-Mode to a destination clustered Data ONTAP system.
Destination storage system is running clustered Data ONTAP 8.3.2 or later. Source storage system has aggregates that were created earlier than Data ONTAP 7-Mode 8.2.
Note: Customers who use 7MTT Copy Based Transition (CBT) are not affected by this issue.
After CFT has completed, the following issues might be encountered on the transitioned aggregates.
- Clustered Data ONTAP to clustered Data ONTAP SnapMirror operations like initialize, re-sync, update will fail if the destination volume of the SnapMirror/SnapVault is residing on a transitioned CFT aggregates.
Note: The following error message might also be seen in the

- Vol move operations will fail if the destination volume of the operation resides on the transitioned CFT aggregate.
