FAS and V-Series Storage Systems Discussions

Trying to pull files from FAS 3270

I am in a unique position, and am hoping someone can provide some guidance. A customer of mine had a server hosted by another company. Said company shuttered its doors unexpectedly, leaving my customer unable to get to his data. I have, with the hosting companies permission, obtained the natapp appliance on which the VM in question was sitting.

 

My thought was, if I can get the appliance up to where I can access volumes, I can pull the VM files off the storage and then import into my own vCenter. Then I would not need to worry about getting the ESX hosts (which I also have) up and talking to the appliance for vCenter.

 

I have been able to cable it up, and get in through the console cable in a putty session. From here I booted OnTap. I can see under network interface show what I assume is the management port (e0M). What I need to do is find a way to ip this appliance to my network so I can pull the VM files from it. I have a cable plugged into e0a, but if I do network interface show e0a I get "There are no entries matching your query"

 

I am not a netapp guy by any means, I work almost completely in the VMware space with EMC storage. Am hoping someone can walk me through getting this appliance IP'd so I can pull the necessary data off.

You'll probably end up needing to re-ip more than just e0M and e0a,   Can you post the output of 

 

"rdfile /etc/rc"

 

from each controler? 

 

note: i'm assuming this is a 7mode system. 

Re: Trying to pull files from FAS 3270

I get that rdfile is not a recognized command...

 

I just closed the putty session and logged back in, and now see this, which scrolled by too fast last time for me:

 

login: admin

The contents of the root volume may have changed and the local management

configuration may be inconsistent and/or the local management databases may be

out of sync with the replicated databases. This node is not fully operational.

Contact support personnel for the root volume recovery procedures.

Re: Trying to pull files from FAS 3270

Oh.  looks like Clustered though...

Can you run these?  

 

version 

cluster show 

network interface show

Re: Trying to pull files from FAS 3270

Version shows the error:

(vserver services ndmp version)

Error: show failed: database sequential_identifier_byname is not open

 

cluster show comes back with "show is not a recognized command"

I did a cluster ? and see the following options:

     create Create a cluster
     date> Manage cluster's date and time setting
     join Join an existing cluster using the specified
    member's IP address or by cluster name
    setup Setup wizard
    statistics> Display cluster statistics
    time-service> Manage cluster time services

I did a cluster date show and get the following:

     Node Date Time zone
     --------- ------------------------- -------------------------
     RCISTORE-01
     8/14/2019 15:36:30 -04:00 America/Detroit

 

network interface show gives me what I am assuming is the console connection (e0M):

Logical Status Network Current Current Is
Vserver Interface Admin/Oper Address/Mask Node Port Home
----------- ---------- ---------- ------------------ ------------- ------- ----
RCI_Communications
Reliant-01 up/down 10.22.20.11/24 RCISTORE-01 e0M true

Re: Trying to pull files from FAS 3270

Thinking through some other troubleshooting steps...  There is something for sure not right with the cluster/nodes.  

 

Is the output the same if you console in to the other controller?  

How is it cabled?    Here's a reference doc: https://library.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_download_file/ECMP1213632 

 

Couple more for you to run: 

 

aggr show 

vol show 

vserver show 

set d; debug vreport show  

set adv; cluster ring show  

Re: Trying to pull files from FAS 3270

Here are the outputs. I will try plugging into the other port here in a moment:

 

aggr show:

Re: Trying to pull files from FAS 3270

Double check your Cluster cabling and SAS cabling too. 

Re: Trying to pull files from FAS 3270

That could very well be incorrect, I re-cabled everything the way they had it when I picked the equipment up, via a number of screenshots I took as they unplugged each cable. Is there an easy doc out there for proper cabling?
