SnapDrive for UNIX requires a host operating system, host file systems, NFS, volume managers, FC or iSCSI Host Utilities, storage system licenses, Data ONTAP software, MultiStore software, and Internet Protocol access.
The following is a list of host-side entities:
You must enter acceptable values for multipathing-type, fstype, default-transport, and vmtype variables in the snapdrive.conf file as provided in the matrix stack. You must ensure that the values entered are installed and running in your host system.
|Host platform||Default transport type||Multipathing type||fstype||vmtype|
For example, If multipathing is in use with SnapDrive for UNIX with an AIX host, you must set up the features required by the AIX Host Utilities for that host.
NetApp modifies host utilities and components on an ongoing basis. You can track this changes by using the Interoperability Matrix that contains up-to-date information for using NetApp products in a SAN environment.
The storage system license and the MultiStore license constitute the storage system entities.
