Note: Unless otherwise noted, snapshot assisted backup is only supported for supported versions of ONTAP running in 7-mode. C-mode is supported on ONTAP versions 8.2.1 and later (see table).

*Note: With 6.2.2 or later clients, IBM Tivoli Storage Manager recommends by using NetApp Data ONTAP level 7.3.3 or later levels of 7.3 (7.3.y where y=3 or later), due to the Unicode support at those levels of Data ONTAP.

**Note: Support for backing up vFiler volumes requires ONTAP version 8.1.1 or greater.
