Applies to

ONTAP 9

Answer

system node image update -node * -package location -replace-package true -setdefault true -background true

This is used to upgrade ONTAP from HTTP/FTP server and can be used in all of ONTAP 9 releases.

  • The section of "Performing an automatic nondisruptive upgrade using the CLI" in the same guide introduces another upgrade command:

cluster image update -version package_version_number

This is used to upgrade ONTAP from a local folder within the storage itself and only applies to ONTAP 9.4 and later releases.

No need to execute both.
