Has anyone done any work on using WFA in Clustered ONTAP to emulate vFiler DR? I am interested in two aspects: (a) automating as many every day tasks as possible in the target Vserver so that you don't have to manually create shares in both the source and target Vserver and (b) automating the switch from the source vserver to the target vserver. Thanks.

I was working on an initial 'Vserver DR' workflow today. I'm nowhere near complete with this... and there are many other priorities in the way, etc. I have to admit that I am probably not considering everything that needs to be taken into account for the various use cases there could be... however... here are some of my initial thoughts on Vserver DR.
Again, these are the initial thoughts. Complete by no means, and .... no idea of when this will be completed and augmented.
Looking forward to other responses that might be further along in this effort!

You need to wait for a few more days for Vserver DR workflows.
This will be posted in http://automationstore.netapp.com by July end.
This will work with 8.3.1RC1.
For previous versions of ONTAP, there is a VServer Config replication workflow
which can be used for DR setup. However this is a Professional Services supported workflow.
You need to reach out to NetApp Professional Services to get this workflow.
I know for sure that this is being used by couple of customers.
