Network and Storage Protocols

New to NetApp


My company has an old NetApp running OnTap 7.2, and no support through NetApp.

I can log in through the CLI, but the webpage it should be hosting gives me Error 500, and so I have to do everything through the command line.

I can't find a straightforward explanation on how to create a new NFS export, something I could do blindfold in the EMC Celerra on the command line.

I want to create a completely new everything, from raid group on up, as this machine is in the lab for training and testing purposes.

Please direct me to any trainings/support/documentation.

Thanks for your patience,





If you have a system for testing and training then you certainly have production systems as well.  Use the serial number from one of them to setup a NOW account where you will find all the documentation that you need.  It isn't entirely relevant that you can do all of this on an E(xtra)M(oney)C(harged) Celeron, because a NetApp is an entirely different beast.

Other than this, there is probably no official/legal way to give you access to documentation. If someone had the foresight to order the paper/printed documentation with the system originally, then you have something to work with there.



503 error is the expected behavior if you don't have http license. To reach the web interface you can try http://ipaddress/na_admin

If you still get an error you can look at the following options in cli mode:

options httpd.admin.access

options httpd.admin.enable

To manage NFS exports, there is the exportfs command.

Hope this helps


Here's the output:

FAS250-01> options httpd.admin.access
httpd.admin.access           legacy
FAS250-01> options httpd.admin.enable
httpd.admin.enable           on

And I still get Error 500 when accessing http://fas250-01/na_admin.

From what I've read, I have to reinstall OnTap, but I don't have access to redownload the OS and then install it.

As I have no volumes to create an NFS share on, I don't think I've got anything to export.  I've found the documentation confusing.

Thanks for your help.
