NetApp – Check Shelf Firmware Version

This post covers how to check the current firmware version of your disk shelves in a NetApp FAS storage system

From the filer console

sysconfig -v

Then look for “Shelf <number>”. The firmware revision should be on that line:

netapp shelf firmware console

From a Trusted Linux host

rsh <filer hostname> sysconfig -v | grep Shelf

netapp shelf firmware rsh


Then head off to to check out if you need an upgrade 🙂
