How to Update the Disk Shelf Firmware in Clustered Data ONTAP 8.1.X

Note: When you perform a Data ONTAP software upgrade, disk shelf firmware is included with the Data ONTAP upgrade package. Verify the recommended procedure with AutoSupport > Upgrade Advisor.

From http://support.netapp.com
Downloads > Firmware > Disk Shelf Firmware
Here we’ll select ‘Download all current Disk Shelf & I/O Module Firmware’.
Click the Download .zip button at the bottom of the page to download:
all_shelf_fw.zip

Add the all_shelf_fw.zip file to your web server.

Image: all_shelf_fw.zip presented in HTTP File Server

From the CDOT CLI:
Change to the advanced privilege level:

set -priv adv

To download the firmware:

system firmware download -package http://web_server/all_shelf_fw.zip -node nodename

To manually update the disk shelf firmware without rebooting:

system node run -node nodename -command storage download shelf

To manually update the ACPP firmware without rebooting:

system node run -node nodename -command storage download acp

APPENDIX: Alternative Method

The alternative method uses a scp/sftp host, and very briefly:

set -priv adv
security login show -username diag
security login unlock -username diag
security login password -username diag
systemshell -node nodename

Login with username = diag, and password as set above.

scp user@: /mroot/etc
unzip /mroot/etc/all_shelf_fw.zip -d /mroot/etc
exit

Note: If you do a cd /mroot/etc/shelf_fw and ls from here, you can see all the current disk shelf firmware packages. This is a good way of checking if shelf firmwares are required!

Then the same as the HTTP method

system node run -node nodename -command storage download shelf
system node run -node nodename -command storage download acp
