Hi I am new to Cluster mode.


I want to know how to access the node root volume in cluster mode 8.3.


And also i need to know how to upgrade firmware in cluster mode.




Re: How to access CDot Root Volume

Why do you need access to root volume? What do you want to do?


You find detailed step by step description of update procedure in the same place where you download firmware.

Procedure to manually collect logs is described in knowledge base: https://kb.netapp.com/support/s/article/how-to-manually-collect-logs-and-copy-files-from-a-clustered-data-ontap-storage-system?language=en_US


Knowledge base also has articles explaining how to move root volume. Just do a search.
