The currently running image on this node contains obsolete capabilities which are in use by the cluster.
These capabilities must be disabled cluster-wide using the following per-capability instructions before this node can boot:
format_32bit: You must remove all 32-bit data from the cluster and disable the 32-bit aggregate support using "storage aggregate 64bit-upgrade 32bit-disable" command (privilege advanced).
