When I use the connect-nacontroller cmdlet, I see this output from the command:

Name                 Address           Ontapi   Version

----                 -------           ------   -------

xxxx-xxxx-xxxxx      10.xx.xx.xx       1.13     NetApp Release 8.0.2P3 7-Mode: Thu Oct 13 15:56:25 PDT 2011 Multistore

Is there a get cmdlet that will allow me just to see the version number as in this example, 8.0.2P3

You can find this information out using Get-NaCommand with the ListAvailable switch.  This compares the API from the help documentation with the APIs available on the controller to determine if a command can be executed.  For example:

PS> Get-NaCommand -Category cifs -Verb Get, Set -ListAvailable

Name                                Category        Api

----                                --------        ---

Get-NaCifs                          cifs            {cifs-list-config}

Get-NaCifsHomeDirectory             cifs            {cifs-homedir-paths-get, cifs-homedir-path-get-for-user}

Get-NaCifsNetBiosAlias              cifs            {cifs-nbalias-names-get}

Get-NaCifsOrganizationalUnit        cifs            {cifs-setup-ou-list-iter-start, cifs-setup-ou-list-iter-next, ci...

Get-NaCifsSession                   cifs            {cifs-session-list-iter-start, cifs-session-list-iter-next, cifs...

Get-NaCifsShare                     cifs            {cifs-share-list-iter-start, cifs-share-list-iter-next, cifs-sha...

Get-NaCifsSite                      cifs            {cifs-setup-site-list-iter-start, cifs-setup-site-list-iter-next...

Get-NaCifsStatistics                cifs            {cifs-top-iter-start, cifs-top-iter-next, cifs-top-iter-end}

Set-NaCifs                          cifs            {cifs-setup}

Set-NaCifsHomeDirectory             cifs            {cifs-homedir-paths-set}

Set-NaCifsNetBiosAlias              cifs            {cifs-nbalias-names-set}

Set-NaCifsShare                     cifs            {cifs-share-change}

Conversely, you can use ListUnavailable to see cmdlets that exist but cannot be run on the current controller:

PS> Get-NaCommand -Category cifs -Verb Get, Set -ListUnavailable

Name                                Category        Api

----                                --------        ---

Get-NaCifsBranchCacheHashStatistics cifs            {cifs-branchcache-hash-stat}

Get-NaCifsShareAcl                  cifs            {cifs-share-acl-list-iter-start, cifs-share-acl-list-iter-next, ...

Set-NaCifsBranchCacheKey            cifs            {cifs-branchcache-set-key}

Set-NaCifsShareAcl                  cifs            {cifs-share-ace-set}

Get-NaSystemversion

The reason I need this is to determine ahead of time, what get/set commands will work and which ones won't.  This leads me to my next question.

Is there a table someplace that documents what get/set cmdlets work and which ones do not when it comes to CIFS relative to the OnTap OS version?

You guys are awesome.  Thanks

You need to read the help file

show-nahelp

JBRUNS2012

Tried that.

I looked at, for example, help on Cmdlet: Add-NaCifsShare, there is no mention of the minimum requirements for OnTap release to get it to work.

$ontapVersion = (get-nasystemversion).split(":")

$ontapversion[0]
