Running a FAS270 on a Linux (NFS) system.
NA01> version -b
1:/mips/kernel/primary.krn: OS 7.2.3
1:/backup/mips/kernel/primary.krn: OS 7.2.3
1:/mips/firmware/tsantsa/firmware.img: Firmware 1.2.0
I'd like to go from 7.2.3 to 7.3.7. However I'm running into a couple of bumps along the way. First when I go to download the 7.3.7 file I see no listing for a FAS270. The closest related prodcuts are a FAS200 or GF270. The linke I'm using is here -
The other problem I'm having is that the instructions state I should run "mount na01:/ /somefolder" and copy over the tar file then extract. However once I mount the FAS270 it mounts as a read-only file system. I can't chown or chmod the directory to even allow me to copy over the tar file. I read somewhere that there is a Data ONTAP Upgrade Utility, but the download link is broken - https://communities.netapp.com/docs/DOC-1056
Can someone guide me in the right direction here?

There is a number of different methods of upgrade described in this doc:
There is a reference to Upgrade Utility as well, but the link is broken (the tool may be no longer available?)

I think I figured it all out. I needed to export my NFS share and update the permissions. Once I did that I was able to mount the FAS270 and copy over the files. A walk in the park after that.
