How to copy SP firmware file between nodes in a cluster?


Hey all,

I have a new 2-node cluster of FAS2750 and for the meantime only one of the nodes is connected to the management network.

I was able to pull the SP image to this node only obviously, but I want to copy it to the second node somehow.

Is there some way to copy the firmware/image file to the second node's /etc/software?

I tried ndmpcopy but it failed to run on mroot volumes.

Thanks in advance! 🙂



Swap the management cable to the other node would be my suggestion.


When the system isn't fully commissioned and working, there is no "best practice", there is only "get it done"
