How to access and unmount Netapp FAS3140

Hi all, I'm shutting down all my virtual environment in my data centre which leaves the storage as the last component to be shut down.

May i check if I could access the Netapp using SSH via the Mgmt port ?

I would be issuing the command to destroy all aggr but how do I also wipe out all configuration information ?

Anyone have experience in unmounting the Netapp storage ? Is it as easy as unplug all cables and just remove it from the rack ?

It depends on how thoroughly you want data to be wiped. The simplest approach is to boot in special boot menu and select 4 - this will zero all disks, assigned to controller, and create new configuration, similar to what you get from factory. Your old configuration data will be lost.

Sorry I manage to halt the system and then reboot it but encounter the below.

 

<1> MTL_MODULE(1): TAVOR_IF_CMD_STAT_DDR_MEM_ERR - memory error
<1> MTL_MODULE(1): THH_hob_create: CMD_error in THH_cmd_SYS_EN (7)
<1> MTL_MODULE(1): Please try powercycling the system. If the problem persists, please replace the motherboard.

 

I run boot_diags mb command and got the below.

 

NVRAM DDR memory error - you may have a bad NVRAM DIMM
THH_hob_create: CMD_error in THH_cmd_SYS_EN (7)
Please try powercycling the system. If the problem persists, please replace the motherboard.

 

Does this means the memory needs to be replaced ?
