NetApp - Firmware Upgrades
Posted on 2013-01-28
We received an auto-support email detailing a few risks about our NetApp (listsed below). Is there a step-by-step guide on how to update the firmware on the NetApp. Does the update require downtime? We have two locations with this issue. One is an HA pair, and another is a standalone NetApp in a DR environment. Also, I don't think any of our NetApps use shelves.
