With DataONTAP 8.3 the operational-state of a Vserver will be communicated independently from the admin-state, which means it was time to adjust our Verserver Check.

Up to now,  the default settings led the check to inspect the admin-state. Starting with the next release, the default setting will change to the operational-state. Only by setting the ‑‑state=admin‑state option will the admin-state be checked.

This will result in a UNKNOWN for CDOT filers using DataONTAP versions below 8.3, since their was no operational-state (or it wasn’t communicated). In such cases, the ‑‑state=admin‑state option has to be set explicitly.

This does not apply for Vfiler Check for 7-Mode!
