Can someone please let me know what is the minimum SnapDrive requirement for ONTAP 7.3.2? According to the IMT the minimum version of SnapDrive is 6.1.
This is a very big deal for some of our customers at earlier releases of SD, and hence all of the other SM and Host utilities products.
I think the fact that upgrading the storage systems also affects the hosting environment will be a surprise.
Thanks for your quick response. Can I quote that as a response from engineering, as this is likely to be contraversial? I know what the IMT states, but I am being asked for a more definitave answer.
Sure. I know the support matrix is pretty up-to-date. I myself use it for this type of decisions. If you want to be absolutely sure, I think you need to ask someone working on the support matrix directly.
Thanks for your continuing help.
Here is what I did - Go to IMT, choose SnapDrive on the solutions. Then choose ONTAP 7.3.2, and the only solutions are ones that use SD 6.1 or later.
It is too late for me now, I was on a deadline for my 7.3.2 ONTAP recommendation, and have had to recommend the customer upgrade to SD 6.1 (and then all of the other software associated as well)
To the wider audience, I think the IMT MUST be reliable, as this is the "go to" tool for us in the field on what is supported, and what isn't.
You are welcome. I totally agree with you in tht IMT has to be reliable. Hope your customer will find SD 6.1 is actually very good, with some nice improvement.
