After messing around for a bit, i was able to use the boot_backup at loader and booted in to 8.1. But boot_ontap still has the 8.0 image. How do i do update the flash with the 8.1 image from backup image.

Hi I have kind of a nasty situation here when upgrading ontap to 8.1.4P1 from 8.0.3 what is suppose to be a non-disruptive upgrade. 
 
Upgrade on file1 using 814P1_q_image.tgz -r from a http server are both said fine from both mode
 
************

image2 has been set as the default

Please type "reboot" for the changes to take effect.

sffas1 rebooted in to new version was just fine so we perform a takeover from fas1 and tookover fas2 with a force switch while ignoring the version mistach on cf status, thats ok because node 2 is reboot reboot yet. 
 
but upon reboot of the file2 we noticed it was booting still into old version of ontap
and it threw error during the boot.

I would suggest calling netapp support for this.

JoeG617

I wish i could call netapp on this but this is system we recently removed from production and re-purposing it for test only. on a postivie node, it is not surving any production date. but we no longer have support on it and we can only reply on the community. 

JoeG617

so i found that Boot_backup has the 8.1 image while boot_primary has the 8.0 image. I was able to boot into 8.1 using backup image fine but now the question is how do i copy image 2 as image 1. 

JoeG617

after booting into backup image i was able to rerun the software update with the same image and it completed upgrade successfully.
