Trouble downloading image package from localhost for ONTAP uodate




We're trying to update our ONTAP software from 9.1 to 9.3 and then from 9.3 to the latest version. We're currently experiencing issues however.


Our environment can't connect to the internet, so the only way to get the package would be to connect to the localhost correct? But all attempts of doing so fail.


Please advise!


I'm currently using a Python HTTP server.







try to use HFS web server


then follow cli upgrade procedure:


Hope this help.


Good luck!

I'm intrigued by it but the environment I'm using doesn't have access the the internet. What I can do is download it from another and transfer it. Would that work?

you can download it from the netapp support page. Transfer it to your computer then use HFS to allow the ontap storage to get the images file.

This ended up working perfectly! Thank you


What error it fails with? Can you access the file from other devices in the NetApp subnet? Can you capture the traffic between the web server and ONTAP and see any failures?


I also suggest using a more common web server that is more likely to have been encountered by NetApp engineering / support (Apache, IIS).

My apologies I thought I uploaded several images . This is what I'm getting:


localhost is a virtual address included in every Operating System. Its and address pointing to itself


maybe you can try to use the USB port located behind the storage to transfer the image packet file.


See this forum thread.


Hope this help.
