FAS2040 stuck in loop, won't boot

Hello,

I'm very new to NetApp and have very limited knowledge, so go easy.

Basically I am trying to re-IP the second head of our FAS2040. The first head ran setup fine, however head two gets stuck in some kind of loop that I can't seem to break.

I've been looking around and I can see that there is a command to factory reset the filer but I can't get to the CLI to be able to do this. (I am using a console cable).

I've also tried doing things from the partner by using cf takeover -f but certain commands cannot be invoked in takeover

I do get some kind of error saying that it can't write to /etc/hosts.new

Anyone have any ideas??

Thanks Joe

Re: FAS2040 stuck in loop, won't boot

Likely no disks assigned. All disks may be assigned to the other controller. Or you have unassigned disks. From maintenance mode check disk show -n for innards dined and assign them. Or you may need to unassign spare from the partner node first.

Re: FAS2040 stuck in loop, won't boot

Hi Scott,

Thanks for your response, I did a disk show -n and it reports back no unassigned disks.

Disk show however shows that my second head owns 4 of the 12 disks. Before I tried accessing this filer I'm pretty sure it was set up with 8 + 4 disks assigned to retrospective heads, one spare for each.

Any further input?

Re: FAS2040 stuck in loop, won't boot

Please copy and paste exact console output after filer power on and until next reboot.

Fairly long but this is the output I get:

Re: FAS2040 stuck in loop, won't boot

Do you have any user data on this filer? If not, reinitializing (^C for Boot Menu and select option 4) would be the simplest way. This has to be done when filers are not in takeover state. Make sure to have your licenses as you will need to reenter them again.

Otherwise opening case with NetApp support is needed to make sure you will not accidentally lose data.

Re: FAS2040 stuck in loop, won't boot

Registry errors. Open a case. They can talk through registry restore or if no data to zero out.

root volume is indeed full. It may be possible to recover, but I would not trust myself guiding someone through it via forum.

Re: FAS2040 stuck in loop, won't boot

agreed..me neither. definitely for support.

Re: FAS2040 stuck in loop, won't boot

I have no data that I need to keep, factory reset/ reinitialise is a good option with me. I have done cf disable on the working head, then chosen option 4 on the corrupt head, it still says 'waiting for giveback' though?

I can't get to the CLI on the corrupt head in order to do anything
