Boot ONTAP at the boot environment prompt

Contributors

You can boot the current release or the backup release of ONTAP when you are at the boot environment prompt of a node.

Steps
  1. Access the boot environment prompt from the storage system prompt by using the system node halt command.

    The storage system console displays the boot environment prompt.

  2. At the boot environment prompt, enter one of the following commands:

    To boot…​ Enter…​

    The current release of ONTAP

    boot_ontap

    The ONTAP primary image from the boot device

    boot_primary

    The ONTAP backup image from the boot device

    boot_backup

    If you are unsure about which image to use, you should use boot_ontap in the first instance.
