Step 3: Power on the controllers (non-data preservation)

After installation is complete, power on the controllers and submit your configuration changes to NetApp Technical Support.

Procedure

  1. Power up the new array including any attached drive shelves.
  2. Configure the management port and the IP addresses by installing the SANtricity Quick Connect utility.
  3. If drive security was in use on the existing array, import the security key.
  4. If you were unable to delete the volume groups from your existing array before performing this procedure, you must set all foreign drives to appear as native. For detailed information on how to set drives to native, refer to the SANtricity Online Help.
  5. Send your configuration changes to NetApp Technical Support.
    1. Get the serial number of the old controller-drive tray that you recorded in Step 2.
    2. Log in to the NetApp Support Site: mysupport.netapp.com/eservice/assistant.
    3. From the drop-down list under Category 1 on the Give Us Feedback page, select Installed products.
    4. From the drop-down list under Category 2 on the Give Us Feedback page, select Decommission request.
    5. Enter the following text in the Comments text box, substituting the serial number of your controller-drive tray for serial number:

      Please decommission this serial number as the entitlement has been moved to another serial number in the system. Please reference this in the SN notes.

    6. Select Submit.
