I am reading in the ontap upgrade guide that from a windows host you upgrade by mapping a drive to the root of the system - Howerver, if you do not have cifs what is the process for upgrading DOT?
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

Hi, there are several other methods, all mentioned in on NOW site..
This is a slightly older version of ONTAP, but the upgrade process is essentially the same. Still a good place to start.
Hope this helps.

Pretty sure (its been awhile since i've tried) that you can connect a host to the \\filer\c$ share without a cifs license.
The other, easier imo, option is to use http i.e. software get http://10.1.1.1/801RC3_image.tgz then software install 801RC3_image.tgz

This is NetApp's Storage Management Initiative. Please see this KB:
It effectively allows you to install an agent on a client to monitor/receive information your appliance.
do you need it - no. NetApp Operations Manager is very good unless you wish to do something specific with the information.
Hope this answers all your questions and please dont forgot to award any points.
