Hi there I am starting from scratch to install a FAS2040 is there a setup guide any where I am not finding one
also any help would be appreciated.
Solved! See The Solution
Try a few of these:
Thanks I'll check it out
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.
hey how do you save the running config is there a wr or some command for that
for nvram with netapp
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
does this allow for raid 6 instead of 4 ?
I cant seem to get it any higher it says raid 4 or DP
btw thanks for all the help
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
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
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.
well there is other servers but its vm the 192....
That network is only between the shelves and the controller.
got the rc file going
