Answer

  • This is the message of precheck before ONTAP Upgrade.
  1. When upgrading ONTAP, check the compatibility of the connected switches.

Warning: Ensure that the NX-OS (cluster network switches), IOS (management network switches), and reference configuration file (RCF) software versions are compatible with the target Data ONTAP release., Action: Refer to http://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/download/software/cm_switches/ and http://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/download/software/cm_switches_ntap/ for more details..

  1. Check the Clustered Data ONTAP Upgrade Express Guide to see if validation has been completed.

Warning: Manual validation checks need to be performed. 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 validation checks that need to be performed before update.
Failing to do so can result in an update failure or an I/O disruption., Action: 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 validation checks that need to be performed before update..

  1. NFS timeouts and data corruption may occur if the NFS client connection is a soft mount.

Warning: This cluster is serving NFS clients. If NFS soft mounts are used, there is a possibility of frequent NFS timeouts and race conditions that can lead to data
corruption during the upgrade., Action: Use NFS hard mounts, if possible. To list Vservers running NFS, run the following command: vserver nfs show.

  • If you are already done checking the warning above, ignore messages and select "yes" to continue to upgrade.
