Can we get NetApp Snapdrive agents for HP-UX from NetApp..?

NYAFFA200

We are running some workloads on HP-UX Servers in NetApp Infra and we are planning to take snapshots of those NetApp Volumes. We observed, there is no Snapdrive agents available in the download portal. We need to know, whether we can get Snapdrive agents directly from NetApp.

The NetApp SnapDrive software was deprecated for HP-UX many years ago.  As of August 2022 the NetApp SnapDrive software will be completely EOS on all operating systems, so it is not the direction you want to go anymore.

 

For creating Snapshots and handling other ONTAP activities from HP-UX I would suggest you look into NetApp's Ansible modules (see https://netapp.io/configuration-management-and-automation/) or directly at the new REST API interface for ONTAP that you can script around.  While some may argue that it is not as elegant a solution as SnapDrive, it is absolutely more flexible and configurable.
