Since my last twitter post on Netapp Ontap 9.3, a few people have asked me how I’m running the latest version on the simulator without the Ontap 9.3 simulator being out. It’s actually quite simple and I’ll walk you through the steps below.

In this tutorial I will show you how to renewal a Netapp vserver certificate via the command line.
In this video tutorial, I dive into my lab and guide you through the steps involved to successfully migrate a Microsoft SQL cluster from a Netapp 7-Mode system to Clustered Data Ontap, utilizing the Netapp 7-Mode Transition Tool.
I was looking through a bunch of syslog messages for our c-mode systems the other day and came across a repeated message which was:
One of the buzz words around Netapp Ontap 9 is the new feature of data compaction. Working along side other storage efficiency mechanisms such as dedupe and compression, data compaction is able to further reduce your data foot print.
Ontap 9 is still relatively new, only being released a few weeks ago and with all the hype around the new features and performance gains between previous versions, I really wanted to see this for myself.
If you have been working with Netapp Clustered Data Ontap for a while now you would no doubt have performed quite a few volume moves. However one limitation of the volume move command was that you couldn’t move the volume between storage virtual machines (SVM’s)
If you are taking non-zeroed disks from a later version of Netapp Data Ontap and placing them into a system running an earlier version of Data Ontap you may experience the following warning, error and critical messages in the log:
There is an issue installing Netapp Performance Manager 2.1RC1 on VMware vSphere 5.5 where by the network settings do not get applied during the install wizard.
