Was helping a customer with a ontap upgrade.
The installation went fine, no errors. Before the reboot,disk firmware etc. was upgraded.
I rebooted the system, waited 10 minutes but the system did´nt come back up.
Went down to the serverroom, connected thru serial and the system had stoped at the boot menu:
(1) Normal boot.
(2) Boot without /etc/rc.
(3) Change password.
(4) Initialize all disks.
No errros before that what i could see. i choosed nr:1 and the system booted fine.
So i run version:
NetApp Release 7.3.2: Thu Oct 15 04:17:39 PDT 2009
Still the old version?
If i run version -b:
1:/x86_elf/kernel/primary.krn: OS 126.96.36.199
Rebooted the filer again. Same problem. The boot menu first, then if choosing number one, the old version.
Any one got a clue?

After the download command completed and upon reboot did you run "update_flash" from the Loader prompt?
Link to 188.8.131.52 upgrade guide. If step 11 is not executed the kernel will not be upgraded and the version command will always display the previous version.

has to be an enviroment option like autoboot... I would push the latest controller/diags (extract tar from now site, priv set advanced ; download -d, halt, update-flash, set-defaults, bye)... set-defaults should fix a change in the boot option that might be causing this...run by support too. If firmware/diags are all up to date, just do the set-defaults and bye to change the variables.
