upgrade check does not work for 64-bit conversion

Iluhes
Hi Folks,
NetApp Release 8.2.4P6 7-Mode

Running 
#aggr add Aggr1 -64bit-upgrade check

aggr add: Neither a count of disks nor a list of disks to add
to the aggregate was specified.


Running with # of disk seem to be also not running check

#aggr add Aggr1 -64bit-upgrade check 6 
Note: preparing to add 4 data disks and 2 parity disks.
Continue? ([y]es, [n]o, or [p]review RAID layout) p

Is "check" no longer an option in 8.2.4?

Is the volume already 64-bit? Maybe it is being ignored because it is already 64-bit?

Hi,

Referring to https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMP1511537/html/man1/na_aggr.1.html; "check" is definitely an option for 8.2.4 7-mode.

Your experience is odd, because from the KB article at https://kb.netapp.com/support/s/article/ka31A00000013WlQAI/how-to-perform-64-bit-aggregate-conversion-using-cli-in-data-ontap-7-mode-and-clustered-data-ontap?language=en_US, it shows the "check" command being valid without specifying additional disks. You only need to specify disks when used with the "normal" tag.

Something that might help you is from DoT 8.2.1 Netapp added in-place expansion procedure for 32-bit aggregates to 64-bit improved without requiring additional disks. Have you tried doing this instead? The command would be:
> aggr 64bit-upgrade start Aggr1

Have a look at the TR document for more info on this: http://www.netapp.com/us/media/tr-3978.pdf.

Thank you, I dont want to start without a precheck, I am afraid for space constrains.
I did check the KB as well before I posted and TR before posting, something got broken in my version, in clearly does not want to run a check

Re: upgrade check does not work for 64-bit conversion

Brad Thompson
In reply to this post by Tim McCarthy
I agree with Tim.  Honestly it seems that the KB article has the wrong command listed, or maybe just not enough info listed about using said command.  I imagine if you were to add a disk count that would put the aggr over 16TB then the command in the KB might work. 

Here is a test from my lab box where the check was performed.

FAS3270A> priv set advanced
Warning: These advanced commands are potentially dangerous; use
         them only when directed to do so by NetApp
         personnel.
FAS3270A*>
FAS3270A*>
FAS3270A*> aggr 64bit-upgrade start aggrtest -mode check
Checking for additional space required to upgrade all writable 32-bit
volumes in aggregate aggrtest (Ctrl-C to interrupt)......

Upgrading a volume to 64-bit consumes additional free space in the volume. The
following table shows the space usage after each volume is upgraded to 64-bit:

Volume Name             Total          Used           Available      Capacity
-----------             -----          ----           ---------      --------
 voltest                100MB          5448KB         94MB           5%

To initiate the 64-bit upgrade of aggregate aggrtest, run this
command with the "normal", "grow-reserved", or "grow-all" option.

If you use the "grow-reserved" or "grow-all" option, volume sizes
will be increased automatically as needed during the upgrade.

If I ran the commands from the KB I got the same output you did.  Running the command as seen above was the only way I could get the check to run.

Thank you! Thanks everyone. I hope netapp can make modifications.
