FAS 2240-4 failing to discover during System setup

Hello,

 

To most of you this is probably a simple error to fix but we can't figure out why when using the 3.1 version of the Netapp System Setup it fails to Discover the NetApp San.  They are cabled the way the instructions say to do so. We have the SAN hooked up to the same switch as the computer with the software and both are on the same VLAN.  It finds the IP of the host computer and where to look but fails to find anything it just goes through 8 minutes of discovery.  Anything simple we might be doing wrong?  I really appreciate any help.  This is my first go around with any type of SAN.

 

Thanks

Hi

 

2240is likelly shipped with the old 7-mode OS and not cluster mode that the setup software should work with.

also it has 5 network cards on-board. you might be connected to a non-configured one.

 

if you can find a working ip address. try telnet or ssh to it. once you mange to login run "version"

if it's a 7-mode you can download and use "system manger" to mange it via a GUI.

System Setup will only discover unconfigured systems - and it is unlikely a FAS2240-2 is still in that state.

 

Gideon has given some good advice on managing existing systems.
