Buggy NetApp Powershell Toolkit 9.14.1.2401

The newest NetApp Powershell Toolkit (9.14.1.2401) is very buggy. Anyone other has this problem?

For example a Invoke-NcSnapmirrorInitialize does a resync (instead of initialize) on a SnapMirror relationship. The command neither returns the jobId as stated in the documentation:

DESCRIPTION
Performs the initial update of a SnapMirror relationship. This API is usually used after New-NcSnapmirror, but it can be used alone, that is, without New-NcSnapmirror, to create and initially update a SnapMirror relationship. A job will be spawned to operate on the SnapMirror relationship, and the job id will be returned. The progress of the job can be tracked using the job cmdlets.

Output from the command:

NcController : cluster01
ErrorCode :
ErrorMessage :
JobId :
JobVserver : svm09
Status : running
Uuid : 10a75543-021d-11ef-b77f-00a098daf8c1
Message :

When working with the -ONTAPI switch at least the initialize works as expected.

There are some others problems as well.

Unfortunately since version 9.11+ the toolkit has several problems. For that and many other reasons my company doesn't sell NetApp anymore, in essence they favor new features more than quality and stability of the code!


I can NOT offer a product full of bugs and tell the customer that ONTAP 9.18+ will fix that situation..... "Being sarcastic"
