Hello,  the version 1.0.1 adapter cannot be used with the vSphere version of SRM.  The new NetApp adapters will be posted shortly, we expect within the next few days.

There are two new NetApp adapters for SRM in vSphere.  The is a NAS (NFS) Adapter version 1.4 and a SAN (iSCSI/FCP) Adapter version 1.4.  These must be used with vSphere.

Ok, great, so the SRA is out there for download.

How about TR-3671? I've seen posts from Larry T. that reference this document updated for SRM 4 will be available in "a few days" as of October 6, but I can't find it on the NOW site.

One of our key questions is whether all datastores associated with a protected VM must be on the same controller, as was previously the case.

Hi,

I did not read official documentation about this "single source and destination filer" thing. Last week I talked to a consultant about this an it's still the same in SRM 4.0. So before implementing SRM, you should consider a redisign of you vmware storage enviroment if datastores / RDM's are spread over multiple filers.

I'm also waiting for an update on TR-3671.
