Change configuration from FC to iSCSI

Hello everyone!

 

We have encountered the following problem. We have a Storage E2724, which is now End of Life. We used it in production a couple of years ago, configured as FC. We decided to use it for our backup infrastructure, but we need to switch it to iSCSI mode. As we understand, this is done by activating the Feature Pack. We need to request a key from NetApp support and connect it. Unfortunately, we no longer have support since the storage is End of Life.

We found that the controllers have an SMID of 214, and this value needs to be changed to SMID 250.


Is there any way to do this? (via telnet, management, etc.)
