SMI-S Agent support for native ONTAP 8 mode...

Hello everyone,

the installation guide of the SMI-S Agent 4.0 states:

"SMI-S Agent supports platforms running Data ONTAP 7.2.x and later (7-Mode only)."

Does anybody know, if there will be SMI-S Agent support for ONTAP 8 in native mode?

We are plannning to update our filers to native ONTAP 8 mode in spring 2012  and need

SMI-S for System Center VMM 2012 integration.

Thanks in advance

Joerg

Hi Joerg,

The Data ONTAP SMI-S Agent version 4.0 supports Data ONTAP 8.0 and 8.1 in 7-mode. You can manage NetApp backend storage for SCVMM 2012 with the Data ONTAP SMI-S 4.0 Agent.

Support for Data ONTAP Cluster-Mode is planned for a future release.

Please let us know if you need further clarification.
