Hi,

NetApp NFS Plug-in for VMware VAAI version 2.0.1 was released in February 1st,

However, it supports ESXi 7.*,

Please advise when do you plan to release it for ESXi 8.0 (which was released late last year).

 

Thanks,

Roy.

Hi @OnlyMe 

 

As a general comment, we don't share release dates, ETA's or specific date or time commitments for software releases on our forums (unless it's already been publicly announced). 

 

I would suggest you reach out to your local partner or NetApp Accounts Team. They have the ability to, on your behalf, reach out to our product management teams to get clarification on roadmaps and other release information that they may be able to share with you directly.

Hi,

I have reached out to my local partner or NetApp Accounts Team, there is no ETA...

I find it hard to believe that ESXi 8.X is out for quite some time, and the VAAI is not released yet,

Very disappointing

Hi @OnlyMe 

 

Apologies you've not been able to get the information you are looking for from your local NetApp team.

 

I'll see what else I can find out that might help explain the situation further. 

 

Thankyou for your patience.

Hi @OnlyMe 

I can confirm that the new version of the NetApp NFS Plug-in for VMware VAAI is coming. A few contributing factors led to some delays with the release.

 

I know that doesn't help too much with your situation, but I just wanted to at least put it on your radar that things are still moving forward with getting a release out the door to support ESX 8.x.

Thanks,

Do you have an ETA? even which quarter?

Even though it might be compatible with 8.x, when creating a new baseline including the 2.0.1 release, it is displayed as compatible with 7.x, but not 8.x.
