There's something official about it? I cannot find this information on VMWare or NetApp support sites.
In vmware download page for SRM 4.1 there's no NetApp SRA Available:
On the SRM storage partner matrix there's no information related to SRA 1.4.3 with SRM 4.1..
I've also double checked release notes and administration guide for SRA 1.4.3 and I've found no information about SRA 1.4.3.
Can you give me a link where where this information is officially released please?
I need to be sure that SRM 4.1 will work with NetApp SRA and is certified because we have all our DR environment running with SRM and if it will not be available it could be a big problem.

I agree with Francesco, this is a deal breaker for us. I had a new datacenter installation, so I downloaded and installed the latest VMware code (4.1), only to find out that there's no officially supported SRA, and no word from NetApp about why it's not supported, when a supported one would be out. Instead of waiting indefinately without SRM working, I decided to rollback to vSphere 4.0 U2.
The lack of an SRA at release time, or even any official word about it, has delayed our implementation of vSphere 4.1 by at least 6 months (post SRA 4.1 release), probably more like a year.
