NetApp PowerShell Toolkit 9.7 and Add-NcSnapshotPolicySchedule issue

In the latest version of the NetApp PowerShell Toolkit (9.7) the limit for the -Count variable for the Add-NcSnapshotPolicySchedule is still set to 255. This should be increased to 1023. What is the best way to inform the developers of the toolkit?

According to the FAQ for the PSTK, the offiical support channel and feature enhancement request method is the community site.  However, as a workaround, you could use Invoke-NcSystemApi to set a count higher than the limit imposed by the Add-NcSnapshotPolicySchedule cmdlet. For example, on an ONTAP 9.6 system: 

 

PS H:\> Get-NcSnapshotPolicy

Policy               Enabled SnapshotPolicySchedules
------               ------- -----------------------
custom                True   {hourly (1)}

$PolicyName = "custom"
$Count = "300"
$Schedule = "daily"

$Request = @"

  <snapshot-policy-add-schedule>
    <count>$Count</count>
    <policy>$PolicyName</policy>
    <schedule>$Schedule</schedule>
  </snapshot-policy-add-schedule>

"@

Invoke-NcSystemApi -Request $Request
PS H:\> Get-NcSnapshotPolicy

Policy               Enabled SnapshotPolicySchedules
------               ------- -----------------------
custom                True   {hourly (1), daily (300)}
