I've been tasked to upgrade 8 filers Ontap, the problem i have is getting the Ontap files to the download area
This is a very secure setup so only have access via e0M or SP. I have attempted to map a drive to e0M and using a local account but this is coming back various error (network not found etc)
I can logon to each file via the management ports so don't believe it a network problem. But firewalls are a consideration, check with Telnet that port 445 is open and believe this is the only one required
Couple of question
we do have a OnCommand server, can this be used in any way ?
Have considered setting up HTTP on the OnCommand server, but may raise security issues. Is this easy to setup ?
Do i need any more ports open to be able to map a drive or are that any options i need to check preventing access (options interface.blocked.cifs is empty and e0M is off)
Regarding mapping a drive to e0M, I may be mistaken, but I believe that is strictly management when used for RLM/SP purposes. Thus file serving via CIFS or NFS is not possible.
Any chance of a customer-facing network having Internet access where you could serve up the file? I don't know of any other options than http or mount access for getting the upgrade code to your nodes.
