Patch installation steps
You need a NetApp Support Account in order to download this patch.
IMPORTANT INFO: As per my experience - No downtime is required to accomplish this task.
No reboot is needed. During patch installation, SMHV services will be stopped and restarted.
Hence, you can schedule the patching before the next SMHV backup kicks off.
1. Download the patch from this link.
2. Depending upon the processor/OS type, download the appropriate package.
3. Copy the SMHV2.0.1P1 to all the hosts in the HYPER-V clusters [Assuming all the nodes
have SMHV software installed].
4. One by one install the exe on all the nodes. [Start with the Host with least activity or
the one which has no VMs running; this is just to ensure that patch does not break
Open the exe.
Follow the prompts, and leave the defaults.
Continue with the installation.
5. Repeat the same steps on all the hosts.
The next SMHV triggered snapmirror update should succeed. This can be traced in the SMHV
