Last Updated:

Applies to



The validation of Automated Non-disruptive Upgrades (ANDU) reports the warning of LIFs are not hosted on a network port, however, both the LIFs and the ports show normal/up status.

::*> cluster image validate -version 9.3P18

It can take several minutes to complete validation...

WARNING: There are additional manual upgrade validation checks that must be performed after these automated validation checks have completed successfully.
Refer to the Upgrade Advisor Plan or "Performing manual checks before an automated cluster upgrade" section in the "Clustered Data ONTAP Upgrade Express Guide" for the remaining manual validation checks that need to be performed before update.
Failing to do so can result in an update failure or an I/O disruption.
