Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • Clustered Data ONTAP
  • Data ONTAP 7-Mode

Answer

  • SMB Multichannel features are supported starting in ONTAP 9.4
  • SMB Multichannel features are NOT supported in any ONTAP release before ONTAP 9.4
  • SMB Multichannel - Provides multiple connections between ONTAP and clients in a single SMB session. Doing so improves throughput and fault tolerance for Hyper-V and SQL server over SMB configurations.
