Known limitations

Known limitations identify platforms, devices, or functions that are not supported by this release of the product, or that do not interoperate correctly with it. Review these limitations carefully.

These limitations are specific to Cloud Volumes ONTAP management in BlueXP. To view limitations with the Cloud Volumes ONTAP software itself, go to the Cloud Volumes ONTAP Release Notes

BlueXP doesn’t support FlexGroup volumes creation

While Cloud Volumes ONTAP supports FlexGroup volumes, BlueXP does not currently support FlexGroup volume creation. If you create a FlexGroup volume from System Manager or from the CLI, then you should set BlueXP’s Capacity Management mode to Manual. Automatic mode might not work properly with FlexGroup volumes.

Note The ability to create FlexGroup volumes in BlueXP is planned for a future release.

BlueXP doesn’t support S3 with Cloud Volumes ONTAP

While Cloud Volumes ONTAP supports S3 as an option for scale-out storage in some cloud providers, BlueXP doesn’t provide any management capabilities for this feature. Using the CLI is the best practice to configure S3 client access from Cloud Volumes ONTAP. For details, refer to the S3 Configuration Power Guide.

BlueXP doesn’t support disaster recovery for storage VMs

BlueXP doesn’t provide any setup or orchestration support for storage VM disaster recovery. You must use System Manager or the CLI.
