Issue

After migrating to clustered Data ONTAP from Data ONTAP 7-Mode, Microsoft SQL Server reports error when attempting to start it:

Cannot use file '\filer\DB.ldf' because it was originally formatted with sector size 512 and is now on a volume with sector size 4096. Move the file to a volume with a sector size that is the same as or smaller than the original sector size.
