|Risk||This system requires an updated Disk Qualification Package (DQP).|
|Potential Impact||Drives that are not recognized may be handled incorrectly.|
|Details||The current version of the Disk Qualification Package (DQP) on the NetApp Support Site is newer than both the Kernel Version, and any currently installed DQP.|
The Disk Qualification Package (DQP) adds full support for newly qualified drives. Before you update drive firmware or add new drive types or sizes to a cluster, you must update the DQP. A best practice is to also update the DQP regularly; for example, every quarter or semi-annually.
Note: The DQP is not bundled in an ONTAP image - it is not updated as part of an ONTAP upgrade.
When you need to update the Disk Qualification Package
You need to download and install the DQP in the following situations:
- Whenever you add a new drive type or size to the node
Example: If you already have 1TB drives and add 2TB drives, you need to check for the latest DQP update.
- Whenever you update the disk firmware
- Whenever newer disk firmware or DQP files are available
- Whenever you upgrade to a new version of ONTAP
