Issue

Unable to convert a volume transitioned from a 7-mode system to FlexGroup
 
Example:

node::*> vol conversion start -volume vol1 -foreground true -vserver vserver01

Error: command failed: Cannot convert volume "vol1" in Vserver "nas_svm" to a
FlexGroup. Contact technical support for assistance. Reasons:
* The volume is a transitioned volume.
 
node::*> vol conversion start -volume vol1 -foreground true -check-only true

Error: command failed: Cannot convert volume "vol1" in Vserver "vserver01" to a FlexGroup. Correct the following issues and retry the command:
* Cannot convert volume "vol1" because the destination "vol1" of a SnapMirror relationship is in the Broken-off state.  Issue Snapmirror resync, and then try conversion of the destination volume.
* Cannot convert source volume "vol1" because destination volume "vol1_mirror" of the SnapMirror relationship with "vol1" as the source is not converted.  First check if the source can be converted to a FlexGroup volume using "vol
conversion start -volume vol1 -convert-to flexgroup -check-only true". If the conversion of the source can proceed then first convert the destination and then convert the source.
