I have bought a used FAS 3240 from eBay along with DS 2246 hoping to learn how to setup and configure storage systems. The problem is I can not use NetApp support to download system manger neither evaluation keys to go further with the configuration. At this time can anyone advice if there is anyway I can use FAS 3240 for learning purposes ?
Thanks for your interest in learning to use NetApp systems.
The terms of our licenses are that they are not transferrable - so even if you had the original keys, you would not be permitted to use them, even for non-revenue purposes (however I would imagine there is some level of prioritisation of action and that would be pretty low..)
Unfortunately, the FAS3240 is a discontinued system and does not support our most recent operating system - ONTAP 9, so it would provide limited marketable skills, even if you had a license set for it.
