Downloading and extracting the StorageGRID Webscale installation files

Before you can recover StorageGRID Webscale grid nodes, you must download the software and extract the files to your service laptop.

About this task

You must use the version of StorageGRID Webscale that is currently running on the grid.

Steps

  1. Determine which version of the software is currently installed. From the Grid Manager, go to Help > About.
  2. Go to the Software Download page on the NetApp Support Site.
  3. Sign in using the username and password for your NetApp account.
  4. Scroll to StorageGRID Webscale, select All Platforms, and click Go.
    Note: Be sure to select StorageGRID Webscale, not StorageGRID.
  5. Select the StorageGRID Webscale release, and click View & Download.
  6. From the Software Download section of the page, click CONTINUE, and accept the End User License Agreement.
  7. Select the .tgz or .zip file for your platform.
    The version shown in the installation archive file must match the version of the software that is currently installed.
    Use the .zip file if you are running Windows on the service laptop.
    Platform Installation archive
    VMware
    • StorageGRID-Webscale-version-VMware-uniqueID.tgz
    • StorageGRID-Webscale-version-VMware-uniqueID.zip
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS
    • StorageGRID-Webscale-version-RPM-uniqueID.tgz

    OpenStack or other hypervisor

    NetApp-provided virtual machine disk files and scripts for OpenStack are no longer supported for recovery operations. If you need to recover a node running in an OpenStack deployment, download the files for your Linux operating system. Then, follow the procedure for replacing a Linux node.

  8. Download the archive file.
  9. Extract the archive file.
  10. Choose the files you need, based on your platform and which grid nodes you need to recover.

    The paths listed in the tables are relative to the top-level directory installed by the archive file.
