September 15th, 2008

You long-time and short-time admins out there, you ever ask the question "Wow, I wish I had an owners manual for my filer".   I hear it time and time again about the sheer volume of information available to support the filer, but nothing short, simple and sweet to cover it.

Well, look no further than the excellent collateral Rusty Walther and John Laino’s organization brought us!

Available now! with minimal effort on your part (NOW Login Required) You can download an Owners Manual for your filer!

Available in:

  • English A4
  • English 8.5×11
  • Chinese
  • French
  • German
  • Hebrew
  • Italian

This particular guide is intended to cover Support Best Practices.  This is first in a line of many tools which enable you to do more with your own environment and unique needs while taking advantage of the benefits of the many within our install base.

NetApp releases Data ONTAP 7.3 GA!!!

July 30th, 2008

Yep, that’s right, you heard it!
7.3 is finally released! no more release candidate, etc!

What does this mean, in the grand scheme of things?
NFSv4 support which will rock the house in a number of fashions.
SNMPv3 support for my more “secure” zones, to be managed by Operations Manager 3.7
Faster, more efficient operation for a number of things in the system!
It’ll run faster, hooray!

I know there a boatload of changes, too many to even cover – so for reference I’ll link myself back to the release notes!

Data ONTAP 7.3 Release Notes

This is definitely good times, I’ll be upgrading my home filer (FAS940), and my lab early tomorrow morning!
