Ok. 8.2.5P5 (7-mode) is loaded and installed "Software: Installation of 825P5_q_image.tgz was completed."
Obviously my network configuration is broken. I removed unused interfaces via OnCommand System Manager and later on the webinterface told me that there is a mismatch between the OnCommand config and /etc/conf.rc or something like that.
How do I now reset the unit regarding network config?
I can still telnet into it but the OnCommand system detects it but gives me a timeout 500 when I want to login.
you can set up interfaces on CLI with ifconfig command, making sure you include those commands in /etc/rc to be persistent across reboots; my 7-mode knowledge is a bit rusty now but these are the steps more or less:
1) on storage run "rdfile /etc/rc"
2) copy content to notepad++ (UNIX EOL character)
3) add ifconfig statements are required
4) copy all content
5) on storage run "wrfile /etc/rc"
6) paste all content
7) leave an empty line at the bottom and press <ctrl> + <c> to close and save
😎 on storage run "rdfile /etc/rc" and confirm the file has changed
I am not sure what I did. I just entered the commands listed above, then the unit rebooted and I was unable to access it anymore, via IP and telnet/SSH and also the console did not work. I powered it down by unplugging the power cables, waited some time and booted it up again.
Now it is listed up in the OnCommand System Manager with Version 8.2.5P5 7-Mode and I can access the config interface via OnCommand System Manager again.
But all licences are gone and I can not re-enter them: Invalid license.
But for some reason I was able to join the domain and I can access the share with my domain admin. But the ESXi servers can not.
On the new FAS we have running version 9.3 I had to edit "Export Policies" for the SVMs and add the IP addresses of the servers. But I can not find that option on the old one... Where is that?
So this issue is left with the IP addresses and export policies and the licences... System ID of the FAS2240-2 is 1787986847 - if that helps.
