Can i identify ONTAP version from CISF share


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
