I currently manage a FAS2240-2 and prior to putting this into production I went through and upgraded both controllers to the latest firmware of IOM6E and IOM3. My current versions as per sysconfig -a of IOM6E are attached. SO can somebody tell me why Autosupport is still reporting this as being out of date. I dont like it when risks are shown.
Got off the phone from Netapp Tech Support today. They informed me that this is a known issue on the FAS2240-2. They instructed me that a reboot and a manual "options autosupport.doit test" solves the issue. I have today after much pain with iSCSI multipathing troubleshooting, rebooted my controllers. I will check tomorrow and let you know whether this has cleared the messages in autosupport online.
Also, because ACP is used as an alternate path for control commands, not data transfers, it is not a critically-important component. Hence having the firmware a little out of date may not be a major issue.
Thanks for that. My manager wants it to look ll nice in MyAutosupport so will try and update. Can you tell me if it would require a reboot of the controllers? My filer is in production now so cant really have an outage if HA doesnt fail over.
