I have a client that used vfiler on a controller running Ontap 8.1, they are currently snapmirroring from within the vfiler to another dr controller. It works great, its all setup in the snapmirror.conf on the vfiler etc. Oncommand Core (DFM 5.0) is running and discovers all snapmirrors and snapvaults that are running on all "base" controllers and vfilers that are on controllers prior to 8.1 Ontap version. Is there a special tweak we need to set in DFM 5.0, for these existing snapmirrors to be discovered? They use DFM to see what snapmirrors and snapvaults have long lag inmes and cannot afford to log onto each vFiler to check snapmirrors. Any advice would be appreciated.

I strongly recommend you to go to OCUm 5.0.2. Now DFM/OCUM doesn't discover relationship that are created in the vfiler context. Can you get the snapmirror status o/p for the relationship that you dont see in dfm from your filer ?
PM supports and creates VSM/QSM/SV/OSSV relationship in all these topologies.
Filer -> Filer
Filer -> vFiler
vFiler -> Filer
vFiler -> vFiler
In all this cases PM creates the relationship and does the updates using filer interfaces (not the vfiler interfaces). Also PM discovers existing relationship of the above topology only if they are created using filer interfaces and not vfiler interfaces.
PM does not support vFiler DR + snapmanager product + protection manager due to Snapdrive for Windows and Unix not being able to handle two identically named resources returned by Protection Manager
Please let me know if you have any questions
