ACP module connection-error after ONTAP 9.1 upgrade

Hi,

 

I have upgrade my FAS2554 from 8.3 to 9.1. All works fine but about every 5 minutes in the Events Log I found this debug messages:


acp.command.connect: Could not establish connection with 192.168.2.145.

acp.command.connect: Could not establish connection with 192.168.2.145.

 

I read that starting from ONTAP 9 ACP move from out-of-band to in-band for communications, but I have no idea how to switch or solve for my case.

 

Here my configurations:

cluster2::> storage shelf acp module show

I read the KB https://kb.netapp.com/app/answers/answer_view/a_id/1029778 but I have no understand if for my setup is sufficient an

 

storage shelf acp configure -is-enabled true -channel in-band

or can cause problems if firmware or similar are not at the right version.

 

Thanks

Re: ACP module connection-error after ONTAP 9.1 upgrade

based on the firmware levels,  doesn't look like you can move to inband.     

 

Just to confirm, Is this just internal disks or is there a shelf attatched? 

 

have you opened a support case with netapp yet? 

Re: ACP module connection-error after ONTAP 9.1 upgrade

This is a single FAS2554 in HA with 24 internal disk, no external shelf.

 

From ActiveIQ all firmware are marked as update. For now I haven't open a case.

Re: ACP module connection-error after ONTAP 9.1 upgrade

have you tried a manual update of the lastest firmwares?

Re: ACP module connection-error after ONTAP 9.1 upgrade

Hi All

 

i can't find a reference for it now. but i had similar issue with two  FAS2240 also going from 8.3.2 to 9.1 where ACP gone to no-connection. the solution was to turn ACP off and on again.

 

i think there was a bug open for it, but i can't find it...

After the Data ONTAP software upgrade from 8.3.x to 9.1.Px, ONTAP might report
 that the Alternate Control Path (ACP) processor on IOM6/IOM6E is no longer
 active, and it is reported as a "connection-error."
 You can verify this issue by using the "storage shelf acp module show" command
 to display the state of all ACP processors on IOM modules.
 cluster1::> storage shelf acp module show
 Node               Module Name        State
 -----------------  -----------------  ----------------------
 cluster1-01        1.10.B             active
                     1.11.B             active
                     1.11.A             active
                     1.10.A             active
                     1.0.A              connection-error

                     1.11.B             active
                     1.11.A             active
                     1.10.A             active
                     1.0.A              connection-error
                     1.0.B              active
 1. Disable ACP
 cluster1::> storage shelf acp configure -is-enabled false
 2. Wait for 5 minutes to allow the ACP to reset completely.
 3. Enable out-of-band ACP again and use the default IP address. ACP provides the
 IP address.
 cluster1::> storage shelf acp configure -is-enabled true -channel out-of-band

 

Re: ACP module connection-error after ONTAP 9.1 upgrade

Thanks @AlexDawson 

 

the bug report exactly my issue, I will try to disable/enable ACP and let you know if it works and solve my issue.
