ONTAP update to 9.7 fails via GUI

By | 2020-06-09

While updating from 9.x to 9.7 via GUI im getting this error message:

“Failed to add the software image to the cluster.
The request body must have content type multipart/form-data with a field named file”

The solution is very easy: starting with ONTAP 9.7, the image size is above 2 GB and the cluster cannot upload it correctly. To fix this issue, you need to increase the maximum upload size and wait for the job to finish:

set diagnostic; system services web file-uploads config modify -node * -size 4GB
job show

After this, you can upload and install your ONTAP 9.7 via GUI 🙂
