Network Storage Protocols Discussions
If given FQDN of CISF share , can we identify whether the filer is a NetApp filer
And if it is NetApp filer, can we findout the ONTAP version.
Currently there is a way which works for the 7 mode.
we check for the NamedPipe "\\\\NetAppHost\\pipe\\NETAPPSVC"
This named pipe is present on each NetApp filer. Hence if this pipe is present, we can safely assume that it is a NetApp 7 mode filer.
This trick does not work for C - Mode. Is there any way to identify NetApp filer and its version from the vserver dns name ??
Thanks in advance
