Install FASTPATH software

Contributors netapp-yvonneo

When you install the FASTPATH software on your NetApp switches, you must begin the upgrade with the second switch, cs2.

Steps
  1. If AutoSupport is enabled on this cluster, suppress automatic case creation by invoking an AutoSupport message:

    system node autosupport invoke -node * -type all - message MAINT=xh

    x is the duration of the maintenance window in hours.

    Note The AutoSupport message notifies technical support of this maintenance task so that automatic case creation is suppressed during the maintenance window.
  2. Log into the switch as admin. There is no password by default. At the (cs2) # prompt, enter the enable command. Again, there is no password by default. This gives you access to Privileged EXEC mode, which allows you to configure the network interface.

    (cs2) # enable
    Password (Enter)
    (cs2) #
  3. On the console of each node, migrate clus2 to port e1a: network interface migrate

    cluster::*> network interface migrate -vserver vs1 -lif clus2 -source-node node1 -destnode node1 -dest-port e1a
    cluster::*> network interface migrate -vserver vs2 -lif clus2 -source-node node2 -destnode node2 -dest-port e1a
  4. On the console of each node, verify that the migration took place: network interface show

    The following example shows that clus2 has migrated to port e1a on both nodes:

    cluster::*> network interface show -role cluster
    
             Logical    Status     Network        Current  Current  Is
    Vserver  Interface  Admin/Open Address/Mask   Node     Port     Home
    -------- ---------- ---------- -------------- -------- -------  ----
    vs1
             clus1      up/up      10.10.10.1/16  node1    e1a      true
             clus2      up/up      10.10.10.2/16  node1    e1a      false
    vs2
             clus1      up/up      10.10.10.1/16  node2    e1a      true
             clus2      up/up      10.10.10.2/16  node2    e1a      false
  5. Shut down cluster port e2a on both nodes: network port modify

    The following example shows port e2a being shut down on both nodes:

    cluster::*> network port modify -node node1 -port e2a -up-admin false
    cluster::*> network port modify -node node2 -port e2a -up-admin false
  6. Verify that port e2a is shut down on both nodes: network port show

    cluster::*> network port show -role cluster

           e1a  cluster  up   9000   true/true   full/full   auto/10000
           e2a  cluster  down 9000   true/true   full/full   auto/10000
    node2
           e1a  cluster  up   9000   true/true   full/full   auto/10000
           e2a  cluster  down 9000   true/true   full/full   auto/10000
  7. Shut down the Inter-Switch Link (ISL) ports on cs1, the active NetApp switch:

    (cs1) # configure
    (cs1)(config) # interface 0/13-0/16
    (cs1)(Interface 0/13-0/16) # shutdown
    (cs1)(Interface 0/13-0/16) # exit
    (cs1)(config) # exit
  8. Back up the current active image on cs2.

    (cs2) # show bootvar
    
     Image Descriptions   .
    
      active:
      backup:
    
     Images currently available on Flash
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
     unit        active       backup     current-active       next-active
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
        1        1.1.0.3      1.1.0.1          1.1.0.3           1.1.0.3
    
    (cs2) # copy active backup
    Copying active to backup
    Copy operation successful
    
    (cs2) #
  9. Download the image file to the switch.

    Copying the image file to the active image means that when you reboot, that image establishes the running FASTPATH version. The previous image remains available as a backup.

    (cs2) # copy tftp://10.0.0.1/NetApp_CN1610_1.1.0.5.stk active
    
    
    Mode...................................... TFTP
    Set Server IP............................. 10.0.0.1

    Are you sure you want to start? (y/n) y
    TFTP Code transfer starting...
    
    
    File transfer operation completed successfully.
  10. Verify the running version of the FASTPATH software.

    (cs2) # show version

  11. View the boot images for the active and backup configuration.

    (cs2) # show bootvar

  12. Reboot the switch.

    (cs2) # reload
    
    Are you sure you would like to reset the system? (y/n)  y
    
    System will now restart!
  13. Log in again, and verify the new version of the FASTPATH software.

    (cs2) # show version
    
    Switch: 1

  14. Bring up the ISL ports on cs1, the active switch.

    (cs1) # configure
    (cs1) (config) # interface 0/13-0/16
    (cs1) (Interface 0/13-0/16) # no shutdown
    (cs1) (Interface 0/13-0/16) # exit
    (cs1) (config) # exit
  15. Verify that the ISLs are operational: show port-channel 3/1

    The Link State field should indicate Up.

    (cs2) # show port-channel 3/1
    
    Local Interface................................ 3/1
    Channel Name................................... ISL-LAG
    Link State..................................... Up

           partner/long
    0/16   actor/long    10G Full  True
           partner/long
  16. Copy the running-config file to the startup-config file when you are satisfied with the software versions and switch settings.

    (cs2) # write memory
    
    This operation may take a few minutes.
    Management interfaces will not be available during this time.
    
    Are you sure you want to save? (y/n) y
    
    Config file 'startup-config' created successfully .
    
    Configuration Saved!
  17. Enable the second cluster port, e2a, on each node: network port modify

    cluster::*> network port modify -node node1 -port e2a -up-admin true
    cluster::*> **network port modify -node node2 -port e2a -up-admin true**
  18. Revert clus2 that is associated with port e2a: network interface revert

    The LIF might revert automatically, depending on your version of ONTAP software.

    cluster::*> network interface revert -vserver Cluster -lif n1_clus2
    cluster::*> network interface revert -vserver Cluster -lif n2_clus2
  19. Verify that the LIF is now home (true) on both nodes: network interface show -role cluster

    cluster::*> network interface show -role cluster

    vs1
              clus1      up/up      10.10.10.1/24  node1    e1a     true
              clus2      up/up      10.10.10.2/24  node1    e2a     true

              clus1      up/up      10.10.10.1/24  node2    e1a     true
              clus2      up/up      10.10.10.2/24  node2    e2a     true
  20. View the status of the nodes: cluster show

    cluster::> cluster show
    
    Node                 Health  Eligibility
    -------------------- ------- ------------
    node1                true    true
    node2                true    true
  21. Repeat step 1 through step 18 to upgrade the FASTPATH software on the other switch, cs1.

  22. If you suppressed automatic case creation, re-enable it by invoking an AutoSupport message:

    system node autosupport invoke -node * -type all -message MAINT=END
