Wow, awesome - thanks for the heads up!
I had an opportunity to play with beta version & must admit I'm loving the fact that MS SQL can now run over NFS end-to-end (well, you need the latest & greatest SMSQL as well, but I've heard it was supposed to be released together with SDW6.3)

I can't use it in production if the release notes don't support it:

Yeah, no argument here - fully appreciated.
I was just happy as a kid when I managed to successfully set it up in our lab Requirement for official support in a prodcution environment is a different story though.
Having said this, I have a gut feeling VSC 2.0.1 should surface soon, so people can actually make a practical use of this cool feature (unless someone made a typo writing the note! )

I'm having issues with viewing LUNs provisioned over FC from a filer running 8.0.1. I'm curious what version of Data ONTAP you're running?
FAS3140 8.0.1 7-Mode
FAS3170 (HA Cluster) 7.3.3 7-Mode
Windows 2003 Professional Server (32-bit)
NetApp Host Agent ver. 2.7
SnapDrive 6.1.1 Shows LUNs provisioned from filers running 7.3.3 but fails to show LUNs from filers running 8.0.1.
SnapDrive 6.2 works with no errors
SnapDrive 6.3: Shows LUNs provisioned from filers running 7.3.3 but fails to show LUNs from filers running 8.0.1.
Failed to enumerate LUNs.

ok, this is starting to make a little bit of sense... I would like to make use of the new snap drive vmdk on NFS feature, but once I have installed snapdrive 6.3 and try to create a disk there is no option to create it on a nfs volume.
I have looked through the admin guide and it mentions that all of this is possible within snapdrive 6.3 but there is no information on how to do it, only info on how to create a new lun.
can anyone possibly point me in the right direction?
I have the latest vsc installed.
