Have v9.6P1 running in vCenter. Upgrade .iso for v9.7 GA is loaded in content Library. Took a snapshot, attached the .iso in VM settings from the CL. Log into the console interface and run the upgrade. Receive the error:
Setting up ISO...
E: Read error - read (5: Input/Output error)
E: No CD-ROM could be auto-detected or found using the default mount point.
You may try the --cdrom option to set the CD-ROM mount point.
See 'man apt-cdrom' for more information about the CD-ROM auto-detection and mount point. Invalid ISO.
So there is not diagnostic CLI interface like there is the the VSC/VASA appliance console interface, AIQUM is very limited in its interface capabilities, which irritates me a bit, but i get it.
There's an old reference to a similar problem for a v6.x that was a manual address fix, but the KB has long been removed for NetApp KB Article 2025520
