I did a single node upgrade yesterday from the ontap cli. 'system node image get' took 5-6 minutes, but this is the phase where its downloading to mroot. % complelte seemed to hang at several points, but mroot is on simulated disks so writes are expected to be slow. Mine is on an SSD so it didn't take too long but on an HDD that could take a while. 'system node image update' went pretty quick. With reboots the whole process was 15-20 minutes.

IHAC that needs to do this as well, so I'll be trying that scenario shortly. What errors are you getting?

the cluster database was out of qourum continuously. Then once we thought we had it up, we lost one nodes back-end cluster network.
We also had to increase vol0, which isn't a big deal. We pushed 9.1 OVA"s 3x, clustered them in the config, and then managed to blow it up each time.
Hence, whey I need to keep it on single-node for testing

How much ram do your nodes have?
So far so good on my test case, but I'm not on the D patch. How long did it take to fall over?

I'm curious now, so I'll put the debug patch on this pair and see if it misbehaves.
But, have you disabled snaps on the root aggrs and root vols?
