Answer

This list contains all API calls you cannot make during an Element software upgrade. 

Note that the API's below with the * are APIs that allow the forceDuringUpgrade override by NetApp Support. All others are disabled while the upgrade is in progress.

Warning: Caution should be taken when running APIs while a cluster is in 'Upgrade Mode'. If any of these APIs should be run while upgrading, please contact NetApp Technical Support and reference this article for further assistance.
