SDK API to differentiate whether device is 7Mode or CMode


Hi Folks,



Is there a way to differentiate we are dealing with 7Mode device or Cmode device? Basically i want to differentiate in a code saying that this IP is 7Mode or Cmode. Please help me on this.







Hi Viswanath,


You can use the system-get-version API. It returns an in-clustered element, set to true if running cDOT, or false/missing if running 7-mode.


Note that this element is not returned for systems running ONTAP 8.0.*, even clustered. If you have such systems, you'll likely need a workaround, like sending an API that is present in 8.0.* cDOT but not 7-mode and checking if it succeeds.
