puzzled by activeiq warning

on activeiq i got this following warning

 

Risk:Current versions of SP firmware include fixes for bugs #911759 and #1312030, however not upgrading the Service Processor (SP) internal ethernet switch to version3 can still allow network disruptions.
Potential Impact:The downrev SP ethernet switch firmware may lead to repeated SP network resets and dropped SSH connections. In some instances it may prevent SSH connections.
Details:The controller Service Processor(SP) has been updated however the SP internal ethernet switch requires manual intervention to complete the update process.
 
But when i connect to my clusters based on FAS80x node i don't find any evidence of existence of SP internal switch. 
when i ran on my cluster on diag mode 
 

cns::*> sp ?
api-service> Display and configure the Service Processor API service
autosupport> *Service Processor AutoSupport commands
image> Service Processor Firmware Image commands
log> Service Processor Logs
network> Display and configure the Service Processor Network
reboot-sp Reboot the Service Processor on a node
show Display the Service Processor information
snmp> *Service Processor SNMP commands
ssh> The ssh directory

 

i got nothing about an internal switch

then how do i finish the update on the internal switch?

please follow the steps in the bug notes

https://mysupport.netapp.com/site/bugs-online/product/ONTAP/BURT/911759

 

Once upgraded, access the SP CLI to run the following commands:

SP> priv set diag

SP*> sp switch-update

SP*> sp switch reset

 

you must log in to your SP interface  not ONTAP management interface

which contoller?

 

did you see this? https://mysupport.netapp.com/site/article?lang=en&page=%2FAdvice_and_Troubleshooting%2FData_Storage_Systems%2FFAS_Systems%2FHow_to_update_internal_eth...

 

1 - Go to the NetApp Downloads page.

2 - Chose the controller model of interest.

3 - For the purpose of accessing the instructions select either one of the two Service Processor for installation... upgrade methods. (The instructions for updating the switch firmware are the same regardless of which upgrade method is selected.)

4 - Click on a Download link in the table for the specific SP/BMC version of interest and follow the Internal Switch Update Instructions.

 

*Note: Internal switch update procedures have a couple of important model- and version-specific differences. Always ensure you are viewing the instructions for the correct model and SP firmware version.

I'd suggest you to contact activeiq support to check that.

i had missed the point of connecting through sp

Therefore there s a typo in the doc 

it s 

sp switch-reset

and not

sp switch reset
