Hi,

 

I am not sure about cdotor 7-mode but the device is not clustered.

 

 

When I use Connect-NaconnectorI am getting this:

 

PS C:\Windows\system32> Connect-NaController 192.168.2.16


Connect-NaController : Failed to load ntapadmin64 DLL

What is the windows version you are using? I'm facing the same issue and my windws is win server 2016.

 

Does anyone know how to get out of it?
