FAS3020 Head swap

Hi all

I 've read a number of article on the subject.

So sorry to open this new thread, if

I need to replace an old FAS3020 by a new one FAS3220

and also upgrade to OnTap 8.1.2

only the controller will be change, I'm going to keep all my DS14 shelves

So we will received a brand new FAS3220 with compaq flash  new version 8 and NO disk or shelf

FAS3020 is running OnTap 7.3.3

Aside lun serial, network port ,......

Can I just replace FAS3020 by 3220, connect DS14, boot the new FAS3220

What it will happen with the version difference between Compaq Flash and root volume?

The opinion and advice of  somebody who has already done this kind swap will be much appreciated

Thanks a lot

Ricco

Hi RICCO4400,

Lat time I tried swap my 6020 to 6280 which is a lot of funSmiley Embarassed)

You may wish to open a support case + get your NetApp account team involved to hook up a NetApp Prof Service guru to get this tough job done.

Good luck

Re: FAS3020 Head swap

Thank for your fast answer

Yes sur it's an option

but as you know :time is budgetary restriction

So if I can avoid this PS option

I will be happy

If anybody on community has some experience

I've read that a guy simply replace head ,and aggregat converts itself , and he didn't have problem with root volume running OnTap7, after did an upgrade to 8

and that's it

Re: FAS3020 Head swap

Ha-ha Ricco,

Sincerely with you also got that luckSmiley Embarassed)

If your FAS3020 running business critical apps, you may wish to get an action plan through your NetApp account team before you jump in to swap the head.

Good luck

Be aware about DS14 shelves, DS14MK2 (very widely used in a time of FAS3020) is not supported anymore in current 8.x series of ONTAP. So check, which DS14 you have now, BEFORE upgrade will be engaged.

Re: FAS3020 Head swap

"Is not supported" as in "will not boot" or "will boot but complaint loudly"? The latter is perfectly OK for one time head swap boot.

Re: FAS3020 Head swap

There were reports that booting DOT 8.x on 7.x root volume without proper upgrade procedure resulted in extended outage and had to be fixed by NetApp support. So unless you get explicit support ability statement from NetApp, safe way is to setup new filer and transfer data (I would use SnapMirror)

Re: FAS3020 Head swap

Again thanks for your reply

it's DS14MK4 (add later after FAS3020 setup)

to summarize, can we say, that if all components are in the matrix

swap the head, boot FAS3220 should be ok

as we will not able to buy another shelf for doing what you suggest

Re: FAS3020 Head swap

It can be OK, not should

Re: FAS3020 Head swap

Hi Ricco

Matt from NetApp here.  I would stress to get your account team involved in any head swap procedure, for all the reasons listed in the discussion here.  Appreciate your business!
