ontap 8.0.1 on fas 2040

chasejmillerjohnson

Anyone running 8.0.1 on a fas204?  if so any issues?  I really would like to use the VAAI capabilities with our VMware infrastructure and can't wait to move to this latest release.

The 2040 is not supported.

See: https://now.netapp.com/NOW/knowledge/docs/ontap/rel801rc3/html/ontap/rnote/frameset.html

We installed 8.0.1 RC3 on our 2040.  No problems.  We don't have a vmware shop, so I can address that.

Here also 8.0.1.RC3 and so far no issues found.

Per that same link you sent I see the following showing the 2040 is supported…….

Oops ! It is on there.

I'd read through once and didn't see the 2XXX systems.

Checking AutoSupport, I found more than 200 FAS2040s that are running Data ONTAP 8.0.1 7-Mode.  While I don't have information about any specific customer deployments, the sheer numbers are an indication of the quality and stability of the release overall and usage with FAS2040.

Data ONTAP 8.0.1 7-Mode field adoption and customer experience meet GA criteria, and were it not for additional RC releases needed to complete support for the new FAS/V6200 and 3200 systems, the release would have already been declared GA.

I encourage you move ahead with plans to upgrade to Data ONTAP 8.0.1 7-Mode.

Thanks for the info sshapiro! Definitely helps my decision making when I have info directly from netapp.
