I have an question. I need to upgrade a FAS8200 to Ontap 9.7P10 version. Actually, these FAS has Ontap 9.1. Working with NetApp support, they commented that I need to go first from ontap 9.1 to 9.3 and later go to 9.3 to 9.7 version.
All is ok, but for customer policies, http, ftp and scp services are blocked in any PC or laptop on his network. My question is: it is possible to connect my laptop directly to e0m port of FAS8200 and upload the ontap image from my laptop with http service installed on it?
I've read netapp documentation and up to 9.4 version is possible upload a ontap image without http or ftp server .
If e0c or e0d is available, configure the port as a node management port with off-key IP address (192.168.210.10/24). Configure your laptop on the same subnet (192.168.210.11/24). No gateway is needed.
