NetApp 7-Mode filers are more and more disappearing from our customer sites. For the forseeable future we will continue to support and deliver 7-mode checks as they are. However, as a consequence of this observation we will:

1. Not update them any more. Except for bugs; it is very unlikely that new bugs are discovered as these checks have been on the market for so long already.

2. Stop testing them in our labs.

To recap: we will not remove 7-mode checks from our product bundle releases, and customers may continue to use them until the end of their subscription.
