Ontap Upgrade 7.2.3 to 7.2.4 (Non disruptiveUpgrade)NetApp 3020 upgrade of Data OnTap 7.2.3 toData OnTap 7.2.4
Performing a non-disruptive upgrade of our NetworkAppliance FAS 3020 (clustered filer configuration)
One of the benefits of having the clustered filers (FAS3020c) isthat I can, in most cases, perform a system upgrade withouthaving to disrupt services running on either system. The processis a little complex but well worth the payoff as in ourenvironment I literally have thousands of students connecting tothe storage at a time. Below is a slightly modified version of mynotes from the upgrade (use at your own risk). I followed thedirections from NetApp's upgrade guide. Although, I will notethat their directions were not exact. I had differing outputs fromcommands at times which made me a little nervous. All in all theupgrade went pretty smooth and the systems have been runningsolid since.

Shelf Firmware
Login to the appliance console.Check current shelf firmware version (
> sysconfig-v
)Enter Advanced privileges (
> priv set advanced
)Start the update
(>storage download shelf )
-This will upgrade the shelf firmware on all the disk shelvesin the system. (If you wish to only update the disk shelvesattached to a specific adapter, enter storage download shelf adapter_number instead).Accept the update, Press
y
for yes and hit enter.To verify the new shelf firmware, (
> sysconfig -v)
Exit Advanced privileges (
> priv set admin
)
Disk Firmware
Disk firmware is automatically updated on reboot if there areupdated files in the disk_fw folder. To keep the system fromupdating too many disks at once set or verify the followingoption.(
> options raid.background_disk_fw_update.enable
)-if it is set to off, I recommend you change it to on
DataOnTap Update
Downloaded the newest General Deployment Release, inthis case it was Data ONTAP 7.2.4.Verified our system met all requirements for running thedownloaded release, updates were required for Diskfirmware and shelf firmware (which was done above)Checked known problems and limitations of the newrelease to see if any would affect our environment.Compared bug fixes from current version of OnTap 7.2.3to new version of 7.2.4.Downloaded newest documentation for 7.2.4
Update Procedure
With C$ mapped on both filers I ran the downloaded OS install(self extracting zip files) to the respective \etc directories. This isthe first step and copies all the needed files over to the filers.Once completed, we perform the procedure below from the NOWupgrade guide for Windows Clients.start the install on both systems (
> download
)Checked the cluster status (
> cf status
) to make surecluster failover was enabledHad filerB takeover services for filerA (
> cf takeover
)-This causes filerA to reboot

)Both systems should now show the updatedfirmware and OnTap version 7.2.4You should also notice that any out of date disk firmwareis automatically updated.
My final steps were to test system connections
We use the following NetApp services: CIFS, FTP, HTTP,FCP via VMWARE. All worked fine. I Also checked ourstudent websites and our web based FTP software thatconnects to the filer.Checked Domain connection using cifs testdc (
filerA>cifs testdc
)-appeared fine
