we have just bought SingleMailboxRestore. I wanted to test it, so I tried mounting a Snapshot throught SnapDrive 7.1.3P1 (filer runs cDOT 8.3.1P1).
I get the error that the FlexClone license is missing.
This did not happen in the past. Since I don't want read/write there is no reason why FlexClone is required. Or do I miss something?
I know that VSC got the benefit of mounting read-write snapshots starting with the release of 8.1:
"In versions of ONTAP of 8.1 and later, the FlexClone license requirement for VSC Backup and Recovery (SMVI) has been removed"
But again, I only care for read-only for SMBR...
I found this KB - https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMP1506026/html/GUID-B6F38384-3FE8-440F-8B6E-0526D4C3D314.html
which says for SMBR/Single File Restore we just need the SnapRestore license, which we have.
Thanks for your feedback!
