FAS and V-Series Storage Systems Discussions
Hi have a client that has a problem in the Storage FAS2020 and we need to reinstall the Data Ontap 7.37 7-Mode Operating System, but no have access to the page to download that OS, i need help to do this task if possible today.
Someone please help me.
See The Solution
Unfortunately, Data ONTAP 7.3.x passed end of version support in 2016 and the FAS2020 passed end of support in mid-2017.
The 7.3.7 software is not available from any source at NetApp.
If you do obtain the software from a kind soul and plan to wipe the system, make sure you document/record the software licenses on the nodes, since you will have to re-install them.
Thank you very much for your feedback.
Yes I am aware of the EOA and EOS dates..
Yes, I had the need to reset the storage.
I have output from the main system configurations:
licenseifconfig -acifs domaininforoute -nsrdfile /etc/hosts
Some features only come back after reinstalling the OS.
Yes, as you mentioned I need a charitable soul who has a local copy of Data ONTAP 7.3.7 / 7.3.7P1, for FAS2020 that can share.
I need this Version too...
It would be nice to have an old archive in case of need from NetApp.
If someone has it and want to share.
Thank you in advance.
Fortunately after long hours looking for it, I found it in the archives of the company, I managed to find a copy that I had guarded 1 years ago.
ATT: Data Ontap version (7.3.7P1)Last update of line 7.3Controller model: FAS2020
You can contact me via private message and I will be happy to share.
