I am trying to integrate our product with NetApp.
So far we have the simulator 7.3 up and running.
Is it compatible with NetApp Manageability SDK 4.0?
I am interested in using Provision Manager Methods.

ONTAP 7.3 is compatible with the NetApp Manageability SDK 4.0.
The NetApp Manageability SDK 4.0 encompasses both Operations Manager, and ONTAP. Operations Manager is a separate off box management tool that communticates with the storage controllers running Data ONTAP. See: http://www.netapp.com/us/products/management-software/operations-manager.html for details.
The Provisioning Manager APIs are for Operations Manager, not ONTAP, so ONTAP 7.3 is irrelavate to Provisioning Manager APIs. While you're reading the API documentation, check-out the storage-service APIs as well. Storage services abstract provisioning and protection policies into one storage service. See: http://communities.netapp.com/docs/DOC-3906 for more information on storage services.
