Requirements for using ODX

Before you can use ODX for copy offloads with your storage virtual machine (SVM), you need to be aware of certain requirements.

ONTAP version requirements

ONTAP releases support ODX for copy offloads.

SMB version requirements

  • ONTAP supports ODX with SMB 3.0 and later.

  • SMB 3.0 must be enabled on the CIFS server before ODX can be enabled:

    • Enabling ODX also enables SMB 3.0, if it is not already enabled.

    • Disabling SMB 3.0 also disables ODX.

Windows server and client requirements

Before you can use ODX for copy offloads, the Windows client must support the feature. Support for ODX starts with Windows 2012 Server, Windows 2016 Server and Windows 2019 Server.

Please contact Fujitsu support personnel for the latest information about supported Windows clients.

Volume requirements

  • Source volumes must be a minimum of 1.25 GB.

  • If you use compressed volumes, the compression type must be adaptive and only compression group size 8K is supported.

    Secondary compression type is not supported.
