How to Update CN1610 Cluster Switch


Hi all,


I have been tasked with updating the firmware on the following sets of switches:


  • 2* NetApp CN1610 Cluster Switches
  • 2* NetApp CN1601 Management Switches
  • 2* HP StorageWorks 8/40 Power Pack+ FC SAN Switches
  • 2* HP SN600B FC SAN Switches
  • 4* HP Brocade 8Gb Blade FC SAN Switches

I am looking for some advice on how to achieve this including what I need to look out for etc.


I look forward to your responses.






Its lil more than a week..I'm sorry that nobody replied to your post.. 

if you are still looking for it.. here is what I have.


CN1610 Cluster Switch : Installing FASTPATH software and RCFs on a NetApp cluster switch


CN1601 Management Switch : Installing FASTPATH software and RCFs on a NetApp Mgmt switch


For rest of the hardware you might have to find from the respective hardware vendor... 





Whether the steps provided in this link -Installing FASTPATH software and RCFs on a NetApp cluster switch for CN 1610 Switch upgrade is only applicable for version  or is it applicable for all other down the line versions ? , because the steps like Lif migration and ISL disable was skipped in this following link -https://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/download/software/sanswitch/fcp/NetApp/cn1610cm/download.shtml# for version below . Someone please clarify ?
