What's new

The 9.7 release of the virtual appliance for Virtual Storage Console (VSC), VASA Provider, and Storage Replication Adapter (SRA) includes several new features and enhancements.

Support for ONTAP 9.7

The 9.7 release of the virtual appliance for VSC, VASA Provider, and SRA supports ONTAP 9.7.

SRA support for Site Recovery Manager (SRM) Appliance

Starting with the 8.2 release of SRM, VMware provides SRM as a Photon OS-based appliance that can be easily deployed into vCenter Server. The 9.7 release of the virtual appliance for VSC, VASA Provider, and SRA is enhanced to support both the SRM Appliance as well as Windows-based SRM

Simplified role based access control using ONTAP System Manager

Starting with the 9.7 release of the virtual appliance for VSC, VASA Provider, and SRA, you can configure ONTAP admin role using ONTAP System Manager

Support for enhanced REST APIs

The 9.7 release of the virtual appliance for VSC, VASA Provider, and SRA includes enhanced REST APIs that will provide vVol metrics for storage systems using ONTAP version 9.7 and later. These REST APIs currently only support metrics for SAN datastores. So, OnCommand API Services is no longer required to get metrics for ONTAP systems 9.7 and later.
