ONTAP S3 server ignores the range header in GET requests if both the start and ending offsets are not defined

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP S3 Server


  •  GET requests that include a range header sent to ONTAP S3 server must specify both a start and end offset for the range header to be honored
    • Examples of unhonored ranges would be
      • (5000-) - Bytes 5000 to end of file
      • (-5000) - The last 5000 bytes of the file
    • ONTAP will honor GET requests with range headers that specify both a start and end offset
    • ONTAP will honor GET requests that don't specify a range header
  • If either the start OR the end offset is not specified, the entire object is returned
  • Clients that expect this range to be honored have reported corrupted files when the last offset requested returns the entire file
