With vCenter 5.1 having been released last month, does anyone have any experience (good or bad) with it in a NetApp environment? We're currently running 5.0 Update 1, VSC 2.1.1, ONTAP 8.0.2 7-Mode and looking to upgrade vCenter in the next few weeks.
Does anyone have any visibility into when it will appear in the IMT?
Yes, we're using NFS datastores, plus VMFS via FC for the RDM mappings. Our vmware guy here is itching to upgrade to vcenter 5.1, so would be great if anyone has any target release dates for these.
Yeah, we're wanting to upgrade ONTAP to version 8.1.2 which apparently includes a fix for CSB-1208-02. Also have some compatibility issues with SnapDrive for Unix & Windows, and some snapmanagers which need resolving before we can go to 8.1.x according to IMT. We're hoping to avoid having to go to 8.0.3 then 8.1.2 a short time later...unless there's a strong case otherwise.
