FAS3210 running 8.0.2P3 7-mode with two controllers in a single stack.
I've configured controller B's network interfaces using command line over the serial connection. Then rebooted it using "reboot. After a few minutes, I wasn't able to connect using its ip addreses. I connected through the serial console and found that none of interfaces were configured with the ips I assigned them.
controller B's interfaces were assigned ips using the following "ifconfig e0a 126.96.36.199 netmask 255.255.255.0 partner 192.168.1.2"
ifconfig -a showed the ip bound to e0a and I could ping it from controller A but after a reboot all was lost.
Any assistance or clarification is appreciated.

To make network configuration persistent you have to add this to /etc/rc file. You can do it by mounting /etc via NFS in another computer, or using wrfile command.
Caution with using wrfile command. It will subscribe all file content. You can access the controller via serial and execute:
netapp> rdfile /etc/rc
Then put the output in a notepad. Add the command you executed, and use wrfile:
netapp> wrfile /etc/rc
ctrl + C
