FAS and V-Series Storage Systems Discussions
I'm trying to update an old FAS270 for some tests to 7.3.6 as I have figured out this must be the latest version for this device.
The docs lack here a little bit as it's unclear how to update this device:
netapp-01> software update http://192.168.1.100/736_sysfiles_m.tar

Is anyone able to give some advice on this ?
OK, solved with some other worksarounds... the actual way you should do on a 270.
If anyone ends up running into this issue in the future...the solution is you need to install from the .exe image, not the .tar image.
