disk firmware for IBM N series
Hi all

We have a mix of Netapp FAS and IBM N series filers. I used to be able to download new firmware for the N series through the IBM support site but this is now saying I don't have a valid support contract. Do IBM do anything to the firmware updates or could we get them from Netapp and apply them to the N series. I have looked at a couple and they appear to be identical but I know with the base OT there is something in the firmware to stop a Netapp version being installed to an N series.
