Need help to install OCUM for 7-mode and C-mode


Hi All


I have recently joined in a new company where no OCUM is configured. We are not using netapp support, we are taking support from third party storage vendor.


I want to setup OCUM from 7-mode and C-mode netapp storage boxes. I need your help to complete this task. I have few questions on this.


1. Do we need license to setup OCUM for 7-mode and C-mode.

2. In my environment we have different versions of dataontap

     ex: 7-mode - 7.3.2, 8.1.3, 7.0.5, 7.2.4P2, 7.3.4

           C-mode - 8.3.1


Now i want to install OCUM core pkg 5.2.R1 for 7-mode systems. and OnCommand Unified Manager for Clustered Data ONTAP 6.4 for cluster systems. My question is am i able to connect all the data ontap versions boxes to OCUM 5.2R1. Is this compatible with all these versions?


Please help me with this.



NO, you have to chose one per Os type


stick with 5.2 for 7-mode

and 6.4 for cdot


@JGPSHNTAP Do i require license for OCUM 7 Mode(DFM License) installation.


Yes, You would need a License key for installing DFM5.2.  No License is required for OCUM 6.4 install.


FYI, DFM 5.2 have two modes C-Mode and 7-Mode. But you need a separate install for these 2 modes.
