Before you begin the Element storage upgrade, you should upgrade your HealthTools suite. Upgrading HealthTools is only required if the management node and Element software you are running is 11.1 or earlier. HealthTools are not required for performing Element upgrades using NetApp Hybrid Cloud Control.

What you’ll need
  • You are running management node 11.0, 11.1 or later.

  • You have upgraded your management services to at least version 2.1.326.

    NetApp Hybrid Cloud Control upgrades are not available in earlier service bundle versions.

  • You have downloaded the latest version of HealthTools and copied the installation file to the management node.

    You can check the locally installed version of HealthTools by running the sfupdate-healthtools -v command.
  • To use HealthTools with dark sites, you need to do these additional steps:

    • Download a JSON file from the NetApp Support Site on a computer that is not the management node and rename it to metadata.json.

    • Have the management node up and running at the dark site.
