NetApp StorageGRID


  • This article describes the process to upgrade E-Series SANtricity OS or controller firmware in StorageGRID appliances. The table below describes the E-Series controllers in each StorageGRID appliance model:
Appliance Model E-Series Controller(s) StorageGRID Controller(s) or Node
SG56xx 1x E2700 storage controller 1x E5600SG compute controller
SG57xx 1x E2800 storage controller 1x E5700SG compute controller
SG60xx 2x E2800 storage controllers 1x SG6000-CN compute node
SGF6024 2x EF570 storage controllers 1x SG6000-CN compute node
SG58xx 1x E4000 storage controller 1x SG5800 compute controller
SG6160 2x E4000 storage controllers 1x SG6100-CN compute node 
  • While the E-Series storage controllers in StorageGRID appliances use standard E-Series firmware, they do have special NVSRAM (non-volatile static random-access memory). The special NVSRAM MUST be loaded when upgrading the E-Series firmware.
