Hey guys - we are upgrading our clusters to 8.1RC2 (while adding a pile of new disk)
I'm opening a case - looks like we might need a testpoint to pass this bogus check with NMC 3.1 (BTW we used to download NMC via DFM - but now DFM is EOL'ed - so where does NMC come from?)
The image insert on this forum is erroring out - so here is the error:

yes, I show
Edition: Standard edition of DataFabric Manager server
Version: 188.8.131.5236 (5.0)
I believe these are the latest.
I hope to get the workaround soon - no contact yet from Netapp support

Definitely the test point not lining 7.3.5 in your example. Which should be supported. Escalate the case and you should get the workaround. Oncommand5 added a lot more support with 8.1 but most won't be on it until GA.
One last thing. Do you have the exact dfm plugin for your 7.3.5 patch release?

Scott - I'm hearing conflicting things
My SE spoke to a TME(?) and he contends vfiler migration is not supported in this case -
"The reason: Sync SnapMirror is not supported between major releases of Data ONTAP."
who is right?
I want to use datamotion for non-disruptive upgrades - this was the whole reason to wait for 8.1 with datamotion...

Scott - do you have a reference for DFM plugins - I'm not sure what you mean here.
"Do you have the exact dfm plugin for your 7.3.5 patch release" -
I am initiating the vFiler migration from the latest NMC 3.1 connected to the latest Oncommand (DFM) v 5
I'm not aware of where plugins sit in this scenario.

BTW - I think email notifications are broken for the forums - I have email notifications turned on and did not know of any replies until I logged in just now.
