24. After the installation SPA will rebote several times before it completes. Once it’s done you will see a steady green LED light ONLY at the back of the SPA. On the console you should see an output like this – USUALLY THE ENTIRE PROCESS TAKES ABOUT AN HOUR OR MORE so be patient:
for VNX1:
int13 – EXTENDED READ (4000)
int13 – EXTENDED READ (4200)
int13 – EXTENDED READ (4400)

for VNX2:
SASPMC 0 (SAS0) UEFI block reads performed 3456
SASPMC 0 (SAS0) UEFI block reads performed 3584
SASPMC 0 (SAS0) UEFI block reads performed 3712
25. Once you have confirmed that SPA has completed all the reboots and is running normally, connect serial cable to SPB and physically insert SPB back into the midplane. SPB will reboot several times as well, until green LED light is steady on the back of the SPB, then you can continue to the next step. Takes about 40-50 minutes.

26. Once SPB finishes the reboots and it’s operating fine, recable the MGMT ports to the Data Movers

27. Connect serial cable to CS0 using 19200 8 1 none none for PUTTY

28. If running a dual control station turn-off CS1. Insert the DVD disk with the file OS in CS0 and reboot the CS.

29. Restart CS0 and wait to boot from cd. When the system loads from disk “boot” will be prompt, then type “integrated:
boot:integrated

30. System will reboot and start intallation. After about 10 min the DVD disk will be ejected.

31. Tab to the “OK” screens for the first three screens, and on the fourth screen tab to “NO” !!! – this is to allow us to use VNX Installation Assistant later on.
Primary Internal Network Setup > OK
IPMI Network Setup > OK
Backup Internal Network Setup > OK
Network Conifiguration Tab > Tab from “YES” to “NO”

32. Verify the Block OE was commited:
#/nasmcd/sbin/navicli -h spa_ip ndu -list

33. Install the Block and File enablers:
#/nasmcd/sbin/navicli -h spa_ip setstats -off
#/nasmcd/sbin/navicli -h spa_ip ndu -messner -install /nas/tools/BlockEnabler-“version”-armada64_free.ena
#/nasmcd/sbin/navicli -h spa_ip ndu -messner -install /nas/tools/FileEnabler-“version”-armada64_free.ena
#/nasmcd/sbin/navicli -h spa_ip -ioportconfig -lisst -all
#/nas/sbin/nas_hw_upgrade -h spa_ip -option -enable -clariionfc
#/nas/sbin/nas_hw_upgrade -h spa_ip -option -enable -clariionis
#/nasmcd/sbin/navicli -h spa_ip setstats -ON

IF NAS_DB is not defined type the following command:
#export NAS_DB=/nas

[IF THERE ARE PROBLEMS WITH THE LOGS – CLEAR THE LOGS]

34. For single control station, reboot now. For dual control station, power-up CS1 now and perform the “boot:integrated” installation on CS1. After the installation completes on CS1 reboot. Make sure after the reboot you see the following message: “Waiting for VIA…”
35. Reconnect the serial cable to CS0 and reboot it. Make sure after the reboot you see the following message: “Waiting for VIA…” on CS0 as well.

36. The system is ready to be configured with the version specific 7.1/8.1 VIA

WELL DONE!!!
