so I set the IP and subnet etc but the device is still showing something else

is there a way to force the new config

You could boot into maintenance mode (ctrl-c) during boot.  and do opt 4 on each controller    that will wipe everything, including any data.

Got it going, looking to do link aggregation ports so 2 ports work together 

 

in this case both e0a I’d like to get together

What you're looking for is called an ifgrps.   They actually can't cross controllers.   So you could bundle e0a and e0b on the same controller together.     During a failover the IPs that use that ifgrp would move to the partner and data would continue to be served out.

found this http://www.datadisk.co.uk/html_docs/netapp/netapp_cs.htm

but not sure if the commands are current

are you thinking like a cisco device were you have to run something like "copy run start" to make sure it boots OK the next time?    - There's no need for this type of action on netapp.  

 

...or taking a backup copy just incase the root volume / aggr get corrupted?   for 7mode system, this would be a good place to start:  https://kb.netapp.com/app/answers/answer_view/a_id/1036245/~/how-to-backup-system-configuration-files-on-the-filer-

Yea that’s what I was thinking , because the config when I rebooted went away

sorry about that,   give this a look over.  (been a while since I had to build a new 7mode system!)  yeah, you need to copy the same command into the etc/rc file

DP is technically raid 6 dual parity .   https://www.netapp.com/us/products/platform-os/raid-dp.aspx

is it possible to set an IP for the e0P management port? if so how do we do that

I tried from maintenance mode

 

no dice said I have to do it from the CLI

SpindleNinja

e0P is not for data use.  I believe it's for the ACP cabling for external shelves.

I know its not data but what if the IP is in conflict with others... I wondered how to be able to change it

SpindleNinja

I have not ever heard of a conflict,  but then again people usually don't run 192.168.0.x in a corp.    

 

I found an old doc that says that you can use "acpadmin configure"  to configure the IP network.  give it a try.

SpindleNinja

That network is only between the shelves and the controller.
