Upgrading IOM6 Firmware Before Moving Shelf

I am trying to upgrade the firmware on some existing IOM6 modules in advance of re-purposing shelves on a FAS8200.

I have a current FAS8040 with DS2246 shelves with IOM6s.  The FAS8040 is running 9.1P13.  I installed the shelf and ACP firmware files.  When I upgrade the firmware, the shelf firmware upgrades fine (the output of "sysconfig -a" shows the firmware at 0191).  However, the ACP firmware status shows something I have not seen before:

 

::> storage shelf acp module show -instance

Node:node-01
Module Name: 1.0.B
Adapter Name: 0a
MAC Address: 00:a0:xx:xx:xx:xx
IOM Type: iom6

Protocol Version: 0.0.00.00

I cannot find any documentation about what those state messages mean.  The ACP firmware version shows 00.00.  Has anyone tried to do this before?  I want to get the firmware to a level where in-band ACP is supported so I can connect the shelves to the FAS8200.

Is ACP active? Paste output of "storage shelf acp show -instance"

Re: Upgrading IOM6 Firmware Before Moving Shelf

Certainly.  Here is what I have:

 

node::> storage shelf acp show
Node                Channel          Connectivity
------------------  ---------------  ----------------------
node-01    in-band          active

 

node::> storage shelf acp module show -instance

Re: Upgrading IOM6 Firmware Before Moving Shelf

You have IB ACP and firmware version that does not support it. You need to switch to OOB ACP, update firmware and then switch back to IB if desired.

Re: Upgrading IOM6 Firmware Before Moving Shelf

Hello,

 

I have the same issue

When i go bak to OOB, acp iom6 stay in an unknown state and I can't do the firmware upgrade

 

In In-Band config :

No problem with ACP IOM6e state : unkown->initializing->active

ACP IOM6 state stay unknown Smiley Sad

Is there a command to force the initialization of iom6 to do the upgrade ?

Re: Upgrading IOM6 Firmware Before Moving Shelf

I attach the ds2246 to another 2240-2 with ontap 9.0P4. When I use IB mode, It tell me the same thing : need firmware upgrade.

But in OOB mode, I see something else :

...

Node: cluster2-02
Module Name: 1.10.A
Adapter Name: 0b
MAC Address: 00:a0:98:xxxxx
IOM Type: iom6
Shelf Serial Number: 6500xxxx2
IP Address: 0.0.0.0
Protocol Version: 0.0.0.0
Firmware Version: 0.0
Assigner ID: 0
State: awaiting-bootp
Last Contact: 2289

...

The state is "awaiting-bootp" ... What does it mean ? I found nothing about that. Someone have an idea ?

Re: Upgrading IOM6 Firmware Before Moving Shelf

Usual recommendations when some IOM fails to join OOB ACP

  • try to replug LAN cables (plug out, wait couple of minutes, plug back in)
  • try to disable and then enable ACP again
  • try to reseat IOM in question

All failed, case with NetApp support is in order.
