Developers and Operators,

The NetApp unified driver in Cinder currently provides integration for two major generations of the ONTAP operating system: the current “clustered” ONTAP and the legacy 7-mode. NetApp’s “full support” for 7-mode ended in August of 2015 and the current “limited support” period will end in February of 2017 [1].

In accordance with community policy [2], we are initiating the deprecation process for the 7-mode components of the Cinder NetApp unified driver set to conclude with their removal in the Queens release. This will apply to all three protocols currently supported in this driver: iSCSI, FC and NFS.

What is being deprecated: Cinder drivers for NetApp Data ONTAP 7-mode NFS, iSCSI, FC
Period of deprecation: 7-mode drivers will be around in stable/ocata and stable/pike and will be removed in the Queens release (All milestones of this release)
What should users/operators do: Follow the recommended migration path to upgrade to Clustered Data ONTAP [3]<https://mysupport.netapp.com/info/web/ECMP1658253.html> or get in touch with your NetApp support representative.
