ONTAP 9.14

to Japanese version

Compatible ONTAP versions for SnapMirror relationships

The source and destination volumes must be running compatible ONTAP versions before creating a SnapMirror data protection relationship. Before you upgrade ONTAP, you should verify that your current ONTAP version is compatible with your target ONTAP version for SnapMirror relationships.

Version-independence is not supported for SVM replication.

Unified replication relationships

For SnapMirror relationships of type “XDP”, using on premises or Cloud Volumes ONTAP releases:

Beginning with ONTAP 9.9.0:

  • ONTAP 9.x.0 releases are cloud-only releases and support Cloud Volumes ONTAP systems. The asterisk (*) after the release version indicates a cloud-only release.

  • ONTAP 9.x.1 releases are general releases and support both on-premises and Cloud Volumes ONTAP systems.

Interoperability is bidirectional.

SnapMirror SVM disaster recovery relationships

  • For SVM disaster recovery data and SVM protection:

    SVM disaster recovery is supported only between clusters running the same version of ONTAP.

  • For SVM disaster recovery for SVM migration:

    • Replication is supported in a single direction from an earlier version of ONTAP on the source to the same or later version of ONTAP on the destination.

  • The ONTAP version on the target cluster must be no more than two on-premises versions newer or two cloud versions newer, as shown in the table below.

    • Replication is not supported for long-term data protection use cases.

The asterisk (*) after the release version indicates a cloud-only release.

To determine support, locate the source version in the left table column (DR), and then locate the destination version on the top row (DR/Migration).

SnapMirror disaster recovery relationships

For SnapMirror relationships of type “DP” and policy type “async-mirror”:

DP-type mirrors cannot be initialized beginning with ONTAP 9.11.1 and are completely deprecated in ONTAP 9.12.1.

In the following table, the column on the left indicates the ONTAP version on the source volume, and the top row indicates the ONTAP versions you can have on your destination volume.
