I work for a subsidiary of a large corp, and I inherited a FAS2050 running 7.3.7P3 7 Mode.
Out of the box, I did a wipe and selected 4a to create a Flexvol.
Everything went fine in the config, and I have the system online, but there seem to be a lot of quirks that have me questioning things.
There are repeated errors saying that the volume language cannot be set. I attempted to set the language on the volume, but apparently etc/lang/lang.cfg is missing. On top of that, I couldn't even query for the language codes, as it said that file was missing too!
Like above, I was receiving errors that my cluster couldn't sync because the time was off. Easy to fix, so I thought. I just had to set up NTP on each node and call it a day.
I open up oncommand and navigate to system tools - date/time and attempt to set it. I'm greeted with an immediate error:
Data ONTAP API Failed :registry key etc.zoneinfo not found
OK... So I jump onto an SSH session and try to set the zone information and such manually. No luck. etc/zoneinfo not found. I tried to manually set the zone to America/New_York, but it pushed back saying no such zone existed.
So this has me thinking something is rotten with the root volume on my controller. I tried reloading Ontap with the software update/install command (with the appropriate sysfiles in etc/software) but that didn't seem to solve the issue.
