I am currently working on a Cloud project involving Microsoft Hyper-V and Citrix technologies for a customer.
SCVMM 2012 SP1 and Windows Server 2012 will be used.
I have been through technical report (System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 and NetApp Data ONTAP SMI-S Agent - TR-3874) and SMI-S 4.1 admin docs but unfortunately I still have some questions.
My customer will use Vfilers in order to have a multi-tenant environment (1 tenant = 1 vfiler = 1 customer)
· Does SMI-S recognizes a Vfiler like any regular controller?
On the provisioning side, aggregates are added in SCVMM in defined specific service levels. When provisioning is performed by SCVMM, LUNs are created in a choosen aggregate based on service level the aggregate belongs to.
Any help will be very appreciated.

SMI-S does not currently support Vfilers in ONTAP. With the move to Clustered ONTAP we will support Vservers in our upcoming release. There are no current plans to support Vfilers in the future.

Vfilers are not supported in SMI-S Agent 4.1.
On the provisioning side, aggregates are added in SCVMM in defined specific service levels. When provisioning is performed by SCVMM,
LUNs are created in a choosen aggregate based on service level the aggregate belongs to.
Yes. If you specfiy the volume name in the lun path, lun will be created in the specified volume.
lun<number> or vol<number>. number increases sequentially.
We don't use any volume options.
Yes. Specify the lun name as /vol/<vol_name>/<lun_name> to create the lun in the existing volume.
If you specify just the lun name without vol-name, we will create a new volume automatically.

I actually implement a large Hyper-V 2012 + SCVMM 2012 SP1.
I installed the SMI-S 4.1 agent with SCMM and create some LUNS...
I'm very surprized by some settings.
Does this is VMM related ?
Enlightment are welcome.
