I am almost new to netapp. I am trying to put a plan together for taking the firmware motherborad BIOS from 11:11 to 11:16. Lets say I have a two node netapp, say for example:
I do not quite understand the failover takeover and giveback in the attached plan from Netapp. It is not clear whether it automatically reboots on takeover. They tend to mix different scenarios up. In which order I do update a node and check that I have the correct one to start with? I guess what would help is the scenario for FW upgrade would be good!
A partner is another name for a node? Like FAS-Node-01 partner is FAS-Node-02 and vice vera.
//When I download the FW, does it automatically update the BIOS waiting for a reboot?
