What is the minimum recommended version for Cloud Volumes ONTAP?

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP (CVO)
  • NetApp Cloud Manager
  • All Cloud Service Providers


  • CVOs should be kept up to date on the latest version at all times.
  • Cloud Manager will notify the admin if a new version is available.
  • This best practice is in place to ensure proper integration within the Cloud Service Providers environment by keeping up with constant changes and new requirements.
  • Failing to comply with this can potentially impact system uptime.
  • The only exceptions are remedial upgrades where there is a requirement to upgrade to a certain patch that is not offered by Cloud Manager (nor the subsequent versions where the bug/issue is fixed), or if upgrading via the upgrade notification is not possible due to some software issues.
