moving from 7 mode to cluster mode

I have an 8.1 7mode 2240 system in my lab. Can someone point me to documentation on how to switch over to c mode? I dont have any data to migrate. I wasnt sure if it had to come from the factory in c mode or if i could wipe the config and start fresh in cluster mode.

    Good Day!

     

    I believe 2240 is a supported system under CMODE.

     

    You might want to run it through the compatibility matrix to be 100% sure your config is supported:

    They system did not nescessarily have to come from the factory pre-loaded with CMODE.  I believe brand new systems give you an option upon first boot if they are not pre-configured.

     

    If you have a NOW account, I would launch the My AutoSupport utility and run the Transition Advisor to make sure there are no caveats.

     

    I would also strongly recommend that you read the 8.2 CMODE release notes and documentation:

    http://support.netapp.com/documentation/docweb/index.html?productID=61651

     

    As you stated, you have no data to migrate and this is a lab environment.  If you do not care about any existing data, then wipe the system clean and install in CMODE.

    Again..if you have a NOW account and your system is registered, you can download the best version of OnTap that your system supports.

     

    Cheers!
