Supported Drive Types and Firmware Levels for IBM Storwize V5000

V5000 Gen1 hardware is not supported by V8.1.0 or later. The V7.7.1 and V7.8.1 code streams will continue to be updated with critical fixes for this hardware.

Note the following concurrent compatibility tables which illustrate the supported upgrade paths.

Note: Once an upgrade has completed, it is not possible to downgrade the software to an earlier level without deleting and manually rebuilding the system in its entirety, including restoring all volume data from an external backup.

 


Concurrent Compatibility Tables

The following concurrent compatibility tables illustrate the upgrades available for each Storwize V5000 release.

Review the SAN Volume Controller and Storwize Upgrade Planning document for information about minimum and recommended PTF levels.

Review the Hardware Interoperability Matrix for Storwize V5000 Software Levels for information about which Storwize V5000 hardware types can be used with each SAN Volume Controller software level.

Review the SAN Volume Controller & Storwize Family Inter-cluster Metro Mirror and Global Mirror Compatibility Cross Reference for information on which cluster software levels can be connected in a partnership.

Please visit the IBM Support - Software Lifecycle site to determine the support status of Storwize V5000 code levels.
