Is there a document or does someone know the maximum number of array LUNs that can be presented to the different model V-Series ? I saw on the website it gives a max capacity that includes LUNs and disks but not a split for LUNs only. Looked in the TR and i couldnt find the information there.

The number of backend devices that can be supported on a V-Series controller is listed in the V-Series support matrix under Lun Connectivity on NOW.
For example, a V3170 can support 840 devices. These devices can be either storage array LUNs, NetApp disks or a combination of both but not exceeding 840 – for a V3170 or V3170HA controller.

The number of devices supported by given HA pair of V-Series controllers does not change with ONTAP version. What may change is the max capacity, which is *generally* [max # of devices * the max device size (2TB currently)]. Of course, no assumptions should be made, and the Support matrix should be consulted for certainty.
