Data ONTAP provides commands for managing the SP, including setting up and displaying the SP network configuration, displaying the current SP status, rebooting the SP, managing the SP firmware image, and managing SSH access to the SP.
You can use the following Data ONTAP commands and options to manage the SP:
|If you want to...||Use this Data ONTAP command...|
|Set up or modify the SP network configuration, including the following:
||system node service-processor network modify|
|Display the SP network configuration, including the following:
||system node service-processor network show
Note: Displaying complete SP network details requires the -instance parameter.
|Display general SP information, including the following:
||system node service-processor show|
|Reboot the SP and optionally specify the SP firmware image (primary or backup) to use||system node service-processor reboot-sp
Attention: You should avoid booting the SP from the backup image. Booting from the backup image is reserved for troubleshooting and recovery purposes only. It might require that the SP automatic firmware update be disabled, which is not a recommended setting. You should contact Technical Support before attempting to boot the SP from the backup image.
|Display the details of the currently installed SP firmware image, including the following:
||system node service-processor image show
Note: The -is-current parameter indicates the partition (primary or backup) that the SP is currently booted from, not whether the installed firmware version is most current.
|Enable or disable the SP automatic firmware update||system node service-processor image modify
Note: By default, the SP firmware is automatically updated with the update of Data ONTAP or when a new version of the SP firmware is manually downloaded. Disabling the automatic update is not recommended because doing so can result in suboptimal or nonqualified combinations between the Data ONTAP image and the SP firmware image.
|Manually download an SP firmware image||software get
Note: The SP firmware image is packaged with Data ONTAP. You do not need to download the SP firmware manually, unless you want to use an SP firmware version that is different from the one packaged with Data ONTAP.
|Manually update the SP firmware, by specifying the following:
||system node service-processor image update|
|Display the status for the latest SP firmware update, including the following information:
||system node service-processor image update-progress show|
|Enable or disable automatic logout of idle SSH connections to the SP||options sp.autologout.enable|
|Specify the number of minutes after which an idle SSH connection to the SP is automatically disconnected||options sp.autologout.timeout
Note: For this option to take effect, the sp.autologout.enable option must be set to on.
|Restrict SP access to only the specified administration hosts||options sp.ssh.access|
