DS2246 configuration error


Hello friends


I have a DS2246, which my old manager changed user and password and IP network ports.

I try the discovery tool to detect ip, to return to factory configuration, but it does not detect the DS2246.
Using wireshark I detect the ips that change in ranges of 169.254.75.xx or 169.254.127.xxx
Using Putty console to detected IDs asks for password and user, I tested by default admin/netapp!123, but it does not work.

I tried to turn it off and on, but it doesn't discover the DS2246.

What can I do to go back to factory setup and then do the normal setup?

PD:sent photos of the controllers
Thank you for your help or advice


Re: DS2246 configuration error


if we're just talking about what's pictured... All  you have there is just a disk shelf with IOMs.  there is no controller in there.    


The RJ-45 ports are for the ACP setup on a FAS and the wider ones are the SAS connections back to the controller.   


Check out this install guide for an older FAS2552.  https://library.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_download_file/ECMP1609081


Under section 3b,  you'll see a controller cabled to shelves.    


Do you have anything else?   

Re: DS2246 configuration error


I think I understand you...

By connecting the cab to the server's sas controller, the server configures the disks from the same server controller...

Is that so?

What do I need for it?


thank you for your help

Re: DS2246 configuration error


It needs some kind of controller(s) attached to it.    Preferable, connected to some kind of FAS system running ONTAP.    But there are folks that homebrew it to a sever.  Reddit in /r/homelabs has a some posts on it.    I've not ever personally done it. 


But that really is just a shelf with disks.    The IOMs are just IO.  the ACP ports are a mgmt interface of sorts.

To be clear, the only official devices you can SAS-attached to this DS2246 shelf is a NetApp FAS or AFF storage system.
