Behind the Scenes: Episode 219 – FlexVol to FlexGroup Conversion

Welcome to the Episode 219, part of the continuing series called “Behind the Scenes of the NetApp Tech ONTAP Podcast.”


This week on the podcast, we invite the NetApp FlexGroup Technical Director, Dan Tennant, and FlexGroup developer Jessica Peters, to talk to us about the ins and outs of converting a FlexVol to a FlexGroup in-place, with no copy and no outage!

I also cover the process in detail in this blog post:

FlexGroup Conversion: Moving from FlexVols to FlexGroups the Easy Way

Expect official documentation on it in the coming weeks.

For more information or questions about FlexGroup volumes, email us at!
