ONTAP 9.7 is now available, so that means the TRs need to get a refresh.
There are some new features in ONTAP 9.7 for FlexGroup volumes, including:
- NFSv4.x (with pNFS)
- FlexVol to FlexGroup conversion
The TRs cover those features, and there are some updates to other areas that might not have been as clear as they could have been. I also added some new use cases.
Also, check out the newest FlexGroup episode of the Tech ONTAP Podcast:

Most of these updates came from feedback and questions I received. If you have something you want to see added to the TRs, let me know!
