Obtaining Data ONTAP software images

You must copy a software image from the NetApp Support Site to an HTTP or FTP server on your network so that nodes can access the images.

About this task

To upgrade the cluster to the target release of Data ONTAP, you need access to software images. Software images, firmware version information, and the latest firmware for your platform model are available on the NetApp Support Site. Note the following important information:


  1. Locate the target Data ONTAP software in the Software Downloads area of the NetApp Support Site.
  2. Copy the software image (for example, 831_q_image.tgz) from the NetApp Support Site to the directory on the HTTP or FTP server from which the image will be served.
