I want to use SRM 8.2 (on NFS) with NetApp ONTAP 9.7.
According to NetApp, Using SRM 8.2 with Storage Replication Adapter (SRA) 9.7, is a valid configuration:
However on the VMware side, only ONTAP 9.6 is supported with SRM 8.2:
Also, on the SRA download page, I could only find NetApp_Storage_Replication_Adapter_ONTAPA_version9.6.zip
which is for ONTAP 9.6.
Is there a SRA 9.7 version for NetApp?
Which is right, NetApp or VMware?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
You can find the SRA for version 9.7 here - Product Documentation - Product Library
If it exists, it should work.
If this is a new SRA, it will take some time before it's updated on VMware portal. If Netapp has confirmed that the SRA 9.7 is compatible with SRM 8.2, then that should be good.
SRA details are included in that document-
Welcome to the Virtual Storage Console Information Library. Here you will find documentation for current releases of Virtual Storage Console, VASA Provider, and Storage Replication Adapter software
I could only find the following on the NetApp site:
But could not find the SRA for downloading which I find strange because
VMware was supposed to provide it and not NetApp.
You can also download it from the netapp site.
Look at the installation doc - Installing Storage Replication Adapter
It says :
In addition, you must have done the following:
Here's the user guide for 9.7 - https://library.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_download_file/ECMLP2864170
They ask you to download the SRA from Netapp Support site.
