Random discovery of a super secret mode for Netapp CLI. Not a major discovery but was useful to me while troubleshooting something at work.
Its merely an elevated security mode to allow for commands and options normally used by NetApp folks etc.
netapp> priv set <advanced> <diag>
advanced or diag allows for more granual options for your VFilers or the NetApp all together and may come in useful tracking down hidden configuration options that you’re unable to see via the GUI or CLU normally. It’s a toggle so when you enable advanced mode you’ll see the prompt with an * (netapp*> ). If you want to change back to regular mode just type priv set and hit enter.
Just passing this along!
