I'm beginning the process of upgrading from Data Ontap 9.4 to 9.5 (and beyond), but the IMT shows no support for our two main HBA cards running our ESXi 6.7 and Windows 2016
Does anyone have any experience with following adapters and controller versions relating to Data Ontap support?
HPE ethernet 10GB 2-port 562SFP+ adapterIntel x710-DA2 Adapter
Intel Ethernet Controller X710
See The Solution
The Interoperability matrix is usually for FC HBAs, while X710 is a normal Ethernet adapter if I'm not mistaken.
If this is the case, there is no compatibility matrix for normal Ethernet NICs and everything should work through upgrades.
Are those NICs connected to a switch or directly to the controller ports?
for CNA we normally refer to adapters which can do both Ethernet and FC (as well as FCoE) but the X710 seems Ethernet only and I believe this is the reason why we don't have it in our matrix.
you can use the feedback feature of the matrix to contact the team responsible for it and have them verify this information.
