Netapp updating drive firmware

21-Oct-2019 02:37

These drives are upgraded one at a time while the storage array is processing I/O to those drives. You must stop all I/O activity on any volumes that use the drives you are upgrading when you select this upgrade method.

Drives that do not have redundancy must be processed as an offline operation.

Now all you have to do is to go compare your version with the current one.

Check all the per-requsits, download the new one and go with the given instruction of installation.

[php]:: node run -node NODE1 rdfile /etc/qual_devices_v3[/php] You can now check the date with the date of the latest disk qualification package.

To install the disk qualification package you downloaded and setup in HTTP File Server we type the following: [php]:: storage firmware download -node * -package-url The file will now download from the HTTP File Server and install on each node in your cluster.

With online drive firmware updates, all selected drives are updated serially while the volumes stay online, and the storage array responds normally to read and write requests.

Other trick would be to manually force the update with disk_fw_update command, but check out this manual entry: https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMP1511538/html/man1/na_disk_fw_update.1

After a few moments you can re-run the following command to check that the new disk qualification package has been installed.

[php]:: node run -node NODE1 rdfile /etc/qual_devices_v3[/php] Check the date against the first time you ran this command.

node run -node NODE1 rdfile /etc/qual_devices_v3[/php] Check the date against the date show in step 1.

If the date is the same as the Disk Qualification Package then you don’t need to update it.
