    Compatibility Issue with Server 2016 and IBM Storwize SRA

    DaveHodges99 Lurker

      Hi, I have an SRM environment that needs updating to Windows Server 2016 and looking at the compatibility guides think I am stuck?


      Current platform is 2012R2, SRM v6.1  with VCenter 6.0u2a and storage on an IBMv7000 (v7.4.0.1) with Storwize SRA on version 3.2.0


      If I go to Server 2016 I need VCenter 6.5 minimum with SRM 6.5 or above but the latest IBM SRA available seems to be 3.2.1 which only supports VCenter v6.1 and below. Can anyone suggest an optimal path for  running a Windows Server 2016 supported SRM platform with v7000 storage?
