Is the maximum ONTAP version for SDW4.2.1 truly 7.2.4L1?

IMT says ONTAP 7.2.4L1. However custy is currently running 7.2.6.1P4 with no issues, and wants to bump to 7.2.7 (because they are setting up a number of 2008 R2 servers). Is it flirting with trouble to proceed with 7.2.7 without first bumping the SD versions?

I would suggest the customer to upgrade to the latest SnapDrive for a few reasons.

1) Upgrades are free as long as they have Software Support (SSP).

2) Support won't help them if they run into a problem because its not in the IMT

3) There are numerous changes & improvements from 4.2.1 to the latest version that improve usability.

Thx Watan, in hindsight this answer is obvious. This is a classic case of the solution has been running so well for the past several years that the custie is reluctant to touch anything that ain't broke ;^)
