I have a customer who has a FAS2620 HA-Pair running Ontap 9.2. I am trying to update the F/W on all external DS-212C shelves prior to running the Ontap upgrades. I have downloaded the latest all_shelf_fw file to both nodes and I can see the
IOM12A.0260.SFW firmware file in the systemshell under the /mroot/etc/shelf_fw directory. When I run the "storage shelf firmware update" command it does not update the F/W on the shelves to 0260. It stays on the current release which is 0210. Is there a dependency on a new Ontap version with the shelf F/W 0260?
Sounds like I should wait until I get to an Ontap release where the bug is fixed before I apply the 0260 shelf F/W. My plan is to get there shortly and then the shelf module upgrades should happen automatically.
