Clustered Data ONTAP 8.2 upgrade

I planned to upgrade Clustered Data ONTAP 8.1 to 8.2. UA says "You must copy a software image from the NetApp Support Site to an HTTP server on your network".

How can I make one of my 4-node cluster as HTTP server to copy software image?

Is there any other way to copy image like in 7-mode  NFS,CIFS,FTP for c-mode?

Re: Clustered Data ONTAP 8.2 upgrade

Typically I use a local web server on my laptop or an internal web server to host the image file. I then point the filers to the local web server to download the software from.

Thanks,

Dan

Re: Clustered Data ONTAP 8.2 upgrade

On GX I used scp to get the images to /mroot and did the update with file:// saved me lots of headaches. Not sure if this is still applicable to cluster mode but I assume it is. This should give some hints on how to get into the shell:
