The same general guidelines about disk types with synchronous and semi-synchronous SnapMirror apply to both types of Data ONTAP systems (FAS systems and V-Series systems). There are some additional guidelines for systems that use array LUNs.
Note: V-Series ("V") systems and new FAS platforms released in Data ONTAP 8.2.1 and later can use array LUNs if the proper license is installed.
The following additional information about disk types is specific to Data ONTAP systems
that use array LUNs:
- The storage array that is presenting storage to a Data ONTAP system must be using only one type of disk (FC or SATA), and the source or destination must use the same type of disks as the storage array.
- To replicate between a V-Series system and a FAS system, the controllers must be the same platform model, and the disks on the FAS system must be the same type as the disks on the storage array that provides storage for the V-Series system.
