MetroCluster FC to IP transition

Answer

No. MetroCluster IP with an L3 network at the back-end is supported since ONTAP 9.9.1, however, only four-node MetroCluster configurations are supported (two nodes at each site) and the FC to IP transition is a 4-8-4 process.
A subsequent non-disruptive migration from L2 to L3 back-end is also not supported.
