Before you begin

About this task

Management services include the SIOC service for the Element Plug-in for vCenter, the Active IQ collector service, the NetApp HCI monitoring service (for NetApp HCI installations only) and additional services. Updates to non-service-based components of the management node are provided as updated images (OVA or ISO) and cannot be updated using this procedure.


  1. Download the service bundle update from NetApp Support Site to a device that can be used in the dark site.
  2. Open the REST API UI on the management node: https://[management node IP]/mnode
  3. Click Authorize and complete the following:
    1. Enter the cluster user name and password.
    2. Enter the client ID as mnode-client if the value is not already populated.
    3. Copy the token URL string and paste it into another browser tab to initiate a token request.
    4. Click Authorize to begin a session.
  4. Upload and extract the service bundle on the management node using this command: PUT /services/upload
  5. Deploy the management services on the management node: PUT/services/deploy
  6. Monitor the status of the update: GET/services/update/status.
    A successful update returns a result similar to the following example:
        "current_version": "2.0.442",
        "details": "Updated to version 2.0.442",
        "status": "success"
