Compatible ONTAP versions for SnapMirror relationships

Contributors

You should verify that the source and destination volumes are running compatible ONTAP versions before creating a SnapMirror data protection relationship.

Note

Version-independence is not supported for SVM replication.

SnapMirror DR relationships

For SnapMirror relationships of type “DP” and policy type “async-mirror”:

Note

In the following table, the column on the left indicates the ONTAP version on the source volume, and the top row indicates the ONTAP versions you can have on your destination volume.

For SnapMirror relationships of type “XDP”, using on premises, Cloud Volumes ONTAP, or FSx for ONTAP releases:

Note

The asterisk (*) after the release version indicates a Cloud Volumes ONTAP-only release.
