I have powershell installed on my Macbook, I was wondering if the PowerShell toolkit will work. The documentation makes no mention of Mac compatibility. I am assuming I will need to run a Windows VM of some sort. Thoughts?

PowerShell 7 is supported natively on Mac OS.  The newest NetApp toolkit also supports PowerShell 7 so you should be fine using that combination.  More from Microsoft here:  Installing PowerShell on macOS - PowerShell | Microsoft Docs

Can you confirm if the below dependency has a fix? I am unable to 'import-module dataontap' using pwsh on my Macbook.
