Verifying that iSCSI configuration is supported

To ensure reliable operation, you must verify that the entire iSCSI configuration is supported. The Interoperability Matrix lists the supported configurations.

Steps

  1. Go to the Interoperability Matrix to verify that you have a supported combination of the following components:

    • Data ONTAP software
    • Host computer CPU architecture (for standard rack servers)
    • Specific processor blade model (for blade servers)
    • Windows operating system version
    • iSCSI software initiator
    • Data ONTAP DSM for Windows MPIO

  2. Click the configuration name for the selected configuration.

    Details for that configuration are displayed in the Configuration Details window.

  3. Review the information in the following tabs:

    Notes
    Lists important alerts and notes that are specific to your configuration. Review the alerts to identify the hotfixes that are required for your operating system.
    Policies and Guidelines
    Provides general guidelines for all SAN configurations.
