What’s in this VNX update? A LOT (this is a shortened list with key ones from my perspective):
VAAI Support for NFS: This feature allows VAAI for NFS. It’s delivered via a VMware ESX server vStorage plug-in that creates and manages virtual disks as a set of files on a NAS device. The use cases include virtual disk cloning, VM instant provisioning, NAS hardware assisted VM snapshots and storage vmotion.
Any document that explains how to configure VAAI for NFS?

Carles, Here is a article talking about vSphere 5 VAAI features, http://blogs.vmware.com/vsphere/2011/07/new-enhanced-vsphere-50-storage-features-part-3-vaai.html you might look at “
What about NAS?”
section elaborating related parameter setting. Thanks, Eddy
As I know, VNX with File OE above v18.104.22.168 does Support VAAI for NFS, the available feature is listed as follow,
1. Fast Clone
2. Full Clone
3. Reserve Space
4. Extended Stats
5. Offload Status/Abort
I am not sure when VAAI would be GA on Isilon, but according to Chad’s blog, it is coming.
