How to copy ontap images between nodes in a cluster?

elic_co

Hey everyone,

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 ontap image to this node only obviously but I want to save time and upgrade both of the nodes.

is there some way to copy the image to the second node’s /etc/software?

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

thanks in advance 🙂

Use the cli

 

 first get the image from the node with the network:

 cluster image package get -package url|file

 

 after that finishes start the upgrade:

 cluster image update -version 9(tab to get available version)

 

 this should work. It may complain and fail due to the node LIF being down. You may need to use the -ignore-validation-warning flag to bypass any issues. Run without the flag first to be sure

 

 use the man pages for command assistance

 man cluster image get

 man cluster image update

Hey, thank you very much. It worked like a charm.

Do you have an idea on how to achieve the same thing but with the SP firmware file? I usually would run “system node image get”… but I can only download it to node 1, how can I pass it to /etc/software of node 2?

thanks! 🙂
