We have a NetApp filer whicch is running pretty old ontap version 7.1. I have not been able to ping the storage and cannot login via ssh or telnet. All the shares both cifs nad nfs have lost access to the data. I someohow was able to login to the filer via Serial COM port and did basic test and found the network cards e0a and e0b are up and fine. We have configured vif with both of these interfaces.
Okay, I shall do that. First thing I should be able to ping the filer and able to access the filer via putty ssh or telnet which I am unable to. Currently I am able to access only via serial comm port.
