We are pleased to announce the NetApp® OnCommand® System Manager 3.0 beta program. OnCommand System Manager 3.0 data management software is a release dedicated to support clustered Data ONTAP 8.2.


The System Manager 3.0 Beta release supports the following new features for clustered Data ONTAP 8.2:

  • Deploy and manage clustered Data ONTAP 8.2 SnapVault relationship.
  • Set up Vserver and configure protocols on the Vserver using a simplified user interface.
  • Deploy and manage SnapVault and SnapMirror relationships with a simple and intuitive user interface.
  • Create local users and groups on a Vserver’s CIFS server.
  • Create and manage continuously available SMB 3.0 file shares to store Hyper-V virtual machine files on volumes residing in Vservers with FlexVol volumes, while at the same time providing non-disruptive operations for both planned and unplanned events.
  • Monitor the state of all the HA pairs in a cluster running clustered Data ONTAP 8.2.
  • System Manager 3.0 provides support for licensing changes in clustered Data ONTAP 8.2. Clustered Data ONTAP 8.2 feature licenses are issued as packages, each of which contains multiple features or a single feature.
