I am running DoT 7.3.1 on my filers.  Would I need to be DoT 8 to take part in the beta?



Nope, we have Perf Adv too in the beta..


As you know that, Data ONTAP8 supports 7-mode/10-mode. 7-mode is equivalent to ONTAP 7G & 10-mode is nothing but Clustered ONTAP.

If you are more interested in the discovery/monitoring/alerting of "Clustered ONTAP" features, then you need to upgrade your filers to DOT8 cluster mode.

However, for 7G/7-mode filers, there are lots of enhancements done on "Performance Advisor" & MyAutoSupport integration. You can still use your existing 7.3.1 filers (or)

upgrade them to DOT8 7-mode if you are interested only in these features.




I hope in 4.0 Protection Manager uses proper naming for snapshots: no spaces, no ":" or other "forbidden" characters.
