I'm trying to run an evaluation of OnTAP Select in my lab. It seems that OnTAP Select Deploy 2.2.2 doesn't support VMFS-6 yet! I get the following error when clicking "configure hosts" on the Cluster Create screen
(Text reads for searchability: "deatils: Host node2-esxi.lab given pool type VMFS-6 not supported", "type: PoolTypeNotSupported")
A lovely formatted error message I am sure we can all agree ;-)
My lab environment is;
VMware ESXi, 6.5.0, 4564106
VCSA 6.5.0 4602587
VSAN is configured on two nodes with an external witness.
Unfortunately there is no way for me to easily provide VMFS-5 across the lab without some serious work.
Do we know;
A) If the VMFS support check can be overridden for the purposes for evaluation?
B) When VMFS-6 support will be coming to OnTAP Select?
C) If the VMFS-6 limitation is documented anywhere? I couldn't seem to find reference to it in any docs.
Let me know if any other information is useful.
Thanks for any information you can provide.

ONTAP Select can be deployed on the following hypervisors:
1. VMware ESXi 5.5 Update 3a (build 3116895 or greater)
2. VMware ESXi 6.0 GA (build 2494585 or greater)
You can find this information in IMT tool http://mysupport.netapp.com/matrix/#playground

@hariprak - Thanks for that. Really useful.
What exactly isn't supported/working here? Could I for example run up a VMFS-5 Datastore on my ESXi 6.5 nodes and it would 'work' just wouldn't be supported?
Do we know when ESXi 6.5 and VMFS-6 support is on the way?
