Upgrading a management node

If you are upgrading your system to NetApp Element software 10.x, you can upgrade the NetApp Element Plug-in for vCenter Server by installing the Debian package on your existing management node.

Before you begin


  1. Download the NetApp Element Plug-in for vCenter Server Debian package (solidfire-sioc-debian_4.x.x.x_amd64.deb) that is available in the Element plug-in for vCenter Server (formerly VCP) directory from the NetApp Support Software Downloads Site.
    1. Click the <Select Platform> drop-down list and select a version number.
    2. Click Go.
    3. Read and click through the required prompts, accept the EULA, and select the Debian package you want to download.
  2. Transfer the package to the management node using a file transfer tool comparable to the following:
    • rsync
    • FileZilla
    • WinSCP
  3. From your management node, verify that the vCenter Plug-in is currently installed.
    $ dpkg -l solidfire-sioc
  4. Install the vCenter Plug-in Debian package on your management node.
    $ sudo dpkg -i solidfire-sioc-debian_4.x.x.x_amd64.deb
