I would like to know if it is a good practice to simply use SnapCenter as a LUN management tool. We are running ONTAP 9.7 and I know IMT tells me SnapDrive does not support ONTAP 9.7. So I was thinking if SnapCenter is the substitute for SnapDrive when we're talking about LUN management only tasks.
Or should I stay without SnapCenter in that case? (backup is performed by another tool in this environment).
Snapcenter is the replacement of snapdrive as it is no longer supported with the new version of Ontap. Snapcenter plugin for windows will be the plugin you need to use for lun management in a windows machine.
