I picked up a FAS3170 and for the life of me can't seem to get onto the controllers.
I tried a serial connector from MAC USB and only get blank screen so I am obviosly doing something wrong. I tried two adapters so I am not sure what I am doing there. I tried the serial.app from decisivetactics.com to see if a gui could help me but failed with that one as well.
I plugged the management ports into the switch and tried to hit the default IP addresses
They didn't respond at all.
Maybe the previous owner didn't reset anything.
Can the networking settings be reset?
Pardon my lack of knowledge on this topic, but I am stuck.
NetApp does not have any default IP; not sure where you got them from, nor what ports 1 and 2 mean.
Are you sure you are using correct ports and cables. I have no issues using e.g. Cisco console cable with two different USB-to-serial adapters and PuTTY. You need to use 9600, 8 bits, no parity, no flow control.
