Warning! »

If you are upgrading from Open-E DSS V6 to DSS V7 with a running iSCSI or NFS Failover:
Please keep in mind that an upgrade will result in downtime!
Please plan a maintenance window for this procedure. After upgrading to Open-E DSS V7 the configuration for Auto Failover will be removed and you will have to reconfigure it one more time from the beginning.

If you are upgrading from Open-E DSS V6 to DSS V7 with running NFS Failover, please stop the failover before updating, stop and delete the volume replication task of “failover_data” and delete the failover_data (size 2GB) volumes on both nodes. These volumes were necessary for the failover functionality in Open-E DSS V6, but DSS V7 does not use and support them.
