My management are reluctant to allow the use of Mongoose on the network for Ontap upgrades. This has always been the rock-solid method for me in previous lives. They are also questioning the need for ANY web server to do upgrades.... they swear the previous admin "downloaded them directly when ready. Why do we need a webserver?"
My plan involves going from 8.2x to 9.1.. so it will be two upgrades in succession.
Any advice on how best to get past that step of the upgrade plan is GREATLY appreciated!
And that was my reference to management.. So I'm fighting their flawed recollection of what the previous admin may have done rather than having any facts in that regard. I'm just fishing for any breakthroughs in completing that step outside of the guide if any exists. Thank you for the sanity check nonetheless.
