Uhh.. no.

 

Unfortunately it is a very old product, and to make things easier for current customers, we have archived all of our materials relating to it.

 

This website is probably a good starting point - https://www.uow.edu.au/~blane/netapp/ontap/sysadmin/provisioning/concept/c_oc_prov_storage-system-what-is.html

 

At some point, you will need license keys to make it serve data, and if you don't have those, it's a brick.

System Setup only works with brand new systems, and then only with FAS2240 and later systems.

 

You will need to reconfigure the system using the serial port. 9600 8N1

 

Best regards!
