how to perform cluster mode ontap upgrade from 8.2.3P2 to 9.0

Currently: cDOT 8.3.1P2

Upgrade to: ONTAP 9.1

FAS8020 single controller

 

Hi,

 

I need to upgrade FAS8020 single controller from 8.3.1P2 to ONTAP 9.1. I notice some of the commands in the upgrade guide do not seem to apply?

 

ntap01::*> cluster image package get -url http://192.168.27.111/91_q_image.tgz

Error: command failed: This feature is not available on single node clusters.

 

So I tried this and it's uploaded.

ntap01::*> system image get http://192.168.27.111/91_q_image.tgz

Software get http://192.168.27.111/91_q_image.tgz started on node lsvntap01a
Downloading package. This may take up to 10 minutes.

Download complete.
Software get http://192.168.27.111/91_q_image.tgz completed on node lsvntap01a.

 

However, I don't see it in:

ntap01::*> cluster image package show-repository
There are no packages in the repository.

 

Although I do see it in:

ntap01::*> system image package show
Package
Node Repository Package File Name
------------ -------------- -----------------
ntap01a
mroot
831P2_q_image.tgz
91_q_image.tgz
2 entries were displayed.


 The upgrade guide seems to be written for multi-node cluster and it looks like single-node cluster upgrade process is different. Or more possibly it's more about non-disruptive vs disruptive upgrade processes being different?

 

Could someone advise how to proceed from here to get the single node cluster upgraded? Should I just run  'system node image update' or there are other steps I need to follow?

 

Thank you.

Achou -

 

Yes, it would be:

system node image update

system node reboot

 

However ...

 

I note that your jumping from 8.3 -> 9.1

Best practice is usualy to go from major version to major version.

It may still work, but you probably would want to check with upgrade advisor first.

 

See mysupport.netapp.com -> My AutoSupport -> upgrade advisor.

 

You may also wish to review the 'Upgrade and Revert/Downgrade Guide':

http://docs.netapp.com/ontap-9/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.netapp.doc.dot-cm-ug-rdg%2Fhome.html

Or the 'Upgrade Express Guide'.

 

See also this recent post on 8.3-9.1 upgrades, though it's not specific to single node:
