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 

Re: re: FAS2040

SpindleNinja

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

Re: re: FAS2040

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

but not sure if the commands are current

Re: re: FAS2040

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-   

 

Re: re: FAS2040

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

Re: re: FAS2040

SpindleNinja

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

Re: re: FAS2040

SpindleNinja

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

Hi, just had a read through this thread, are you running 7-mode or c-mode. Cause the 2040 supports both ?

Up to 8.1.4 c-mode and 8.1.4 7-mode.

Re: re: FAS2040

yes 7 mode
