restart netapp ontap 7 mode filers after editing rc file

We have 2 controllers in Netapp FAS 8020 and the partner ip address in /etc/rc file is missing in Controller 2. I have edited the /etc/rc file in Controller 2 with correct IP address. I would like to restart the controller2 to get update the rc file.

 

7 mode ONTAP with HA

- What is the best practise to restart the controller 2 without impatcing business, Open the ONTAP system manager and click on system tools in controller 2 and restart

- Controller 2 is having an aggregate of SAS disks, what will happen if restart it?

 

Anyone please help.

regards

Anu

Re: restart netapp ontap 7 mode filers after editing rc file

Depending on your routing, you may be able to get away with simply:

 

 

source /etc/rc

 

Or maybe this IF YOUR NETWORKING IS PERFECTLY SETUP  IN /ETC/RC

 

route -f ; source /etc/rc

 

That will clear any routes and then re-execute the commands in the rc file.

I.E. bring up any new interfaces and establish any default routes.

You can add partner to interface online, there is no need to restart filer. If you want to verify /etc/rc is correct, you need to schedule maintenance window anyway.
