I'm an intern in a small business and this is my first system job (I'm a software developer) and I have to setup the new "application servers". I have all my others servers running but the FAS270 is bothering me. It has not been used since a long time ago, the batteries are completely depleted and all the mount point and network config are outdated.
Rather than trying to configure the actual system I'd like to reset it to factory defaults for a fresh and clean install.
Is there is physical way to "flash everything" so it becomes as good as new. So I can proceed to a brand new install.
I absolutely don't care about the data that's on.
On my actual state I have the lower unit up and running but the upper unit is completely "crazy" with this failover thing.
My main goal is to totaly reset this thing so i can configure it correctly.
Can anyone tell me how te download the latest version or the version that was released at the time I bought mine FAS270. I lost the software and my support contract is not valid anymore. It's weird that you cannot the download the software that you allready paid for, without a support contract.
The only note I might add is that you may want to upgrade Data ONTap first so the aggregate is created with a current/recent version of ONTap (the version of ONTap that creates the aggregate determines some of the underlying aggr layout characteristics).
