hopefully this is the right place to ask this question. I'm having trouble getting my network interface working on my FAS2040, its a unit that has been powered down for some time, possibly wiped and I'm trying to resurrect it.
Firstly, is there a step by step guide to setting up the network interfaces? I found some reference guides here
but that wasn't enough to get me going, and also the Ontap syntax was incorrect. I'm not sure what Ontap version I have.
I have the serial console working and can send and receive commands. I have interface e0a on one of the controllers connected to a switch, my laptop is also connected to that switch via ethernet and my laptop IP is 192.168.0.87.
I'm sending ifconfig commands and have managed to set the IP address of e0a to 192.168.0.10, mask 255.255.255.0, gw 192.168.0.1
but when I ping 192.168.0.10 (from the console) there is no response. Also, netapp system manager discovery tool does not find the unit, and I cannot ping it directly either.
this is the output from the console
hwaddr 00-A0-98-25-78-15, ipaddr 192.168.0.10, mask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.0.1, nameserver not set
speed 100 full duplex, loopback not supported
LOADER-A> ping e0a
Could not resolve IP address of host e0a: No name server configured
*** command status = -24
LOADER-A> ping 192.168.0.10
192.168.0.10 (192.168.0.10) is not responding (seq=0)
192.168.0.10 (192.168.0.10): 1 packets sent, 0 received
*** command status = 1
What am I missing?
