We are working on qualifying Data Domain 5.7.0.x firmware with OCI.
What you need to know:
Neither OCI 7.1.[0-1] nor OCI 7.0.[1-4] will be able to discover a Data Domain running 5.7.0.x as it sits today.
Nor will the forthcoming OCI 7.1.2 out of the box.
We have test datasource patches available for both OCI 7.1.[0-1] nor OCI 7.0.[1-4] to support DD 5.7.0.x. As is the norm, future OCI releases and data source service packs will contain these fixes at some point.
Please be aware, that if you have procured a new Data Domain running 5.7.0.x from the factory, there is a pretty good chance that the OS will live on a handful of SSDs that OCI will not have disk definitions for - so, you will likely need to both deploy a datasource patch, as well as manually defining some disks for OCI to successfully inventory such a Data Domain.
