I have used 'smtape' previously in order to initialize a SnapMirror relationship using 7-mode. The place where I am currently working now has a similar issue in that they wish to use 'smtape' to initialize a number of 'vault' relationships, however this time the customer has Clustered OnTAP (8.2.3). Does anybody else have any experience with this?
What I had to do before was as follows:
Is the process any different for Clustered OnTAP?
I look forward to hearing from you in the very near future.

Yes the procedure is similar. Refer https://library.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_download_file/ECMP1196819 page 67
In case a tape drive is not available in the environment, smtape can be utilized to seed a SnapMirror relationship by using a USB/disk to the destination site.
Note: This is only available in clustered Data ONTAP 8.2.1RC1 and later releases.
