NetApp PowerShell Toolkit, DataONTAP 2 released supporting ONTAP 8.1 Cluster Mode & more vdisk conversions

It seems like only yesterday (well, OK 3 months ago) that NetApp updated it’s Powershell Toolkit, DataONTAP to version 1.7.

Well, today, now we have Powershell Toolkit, DataONTAP version 2.0

The major features include:

  • Data ONTAP 8.1 (Cluster-Mode) support – Cluster Mode Powershell architecture is now said to be stable and complete, 86 new cmdlets
  • Dynamic VHD to fixed VHD conversion – Use rapid copy-offload with ConvertTo-NaVhd to convert a dynamic VHD to a thin, fixed VHD to fix alignment issues without using more space for both LUNs and CIFS shares
  • LUN to VHD file conversion – ConvertTo-NaVhd can convert an entire LUN to a VHD file in another LUN, great for P2Vs.
  • VHD file to LUN conversion – new cmdlet ConvertTo-NaLun to convert a VHD file to a LUN for a V2P if you need to
  • NDMP copy client – 4 new cmdlets to monitor NDMP copy operations.
  • More CIFS shares support – building in support for Windows Server 2012 supporting Hyper-V over SMB.

  • Disable-NaNdmp

  • A timeout parameter is available on Invoke-NaSsh and Invoke-NcSsh.
  • The Install.ps1 and Uninstall.ps1 scripts have been improved for simpler operation.
