Currently viewing public documentation. Please login to access the full scope of documentation.

Depending on the version of Purity that is installed on the FlashArray the vSphere API for Storage Awareness (VASA) Provider version can vary.  This KB will cover the version of the VASA Provider and what Purity releases that version the provider comes with.

1.0.1 5.0.8
5.1.0 - 5.1.7

1.2.0 6.1.3+ 

Any FlashArray on Purity//FA 6.1 should work to get upgraded to 6.1.8 or higher due to critical fixes and enhancements to both Purity and VASA
2.0.0 **6.2.0+

**While the VASA provider version 2.0.0 is available on Purity 6.2.0, the minimum version for full vVols support is 6.2.6 or 6.3.0
2.1.0 6.4.9+

*This is the iterated version of the Pure Storage FlashArray VASA provider version (as Pure adds features or fixes to their vVol implementation it increments). This does not indicate the VASA API version.

The supported VASA API versions of 3.0 and 3.5 are shipped with VASA Provider 1.2.0 and higher.

The supported VASA API versions of 3.0, 3.5 and 5.0 are shipped with VASA Provider 2.1.0 and higher. 

Please note that the VASA version may not update in the vCenter UI for the Storage Providers registered after a Purity upgrade on the FlashArray.  This does not mean that the new VASA version isn't being used on the FlashArray or that there is anything failing with the Storage Providers.  Rather the vCenter UI does not update the Array Information in the Storage Providers after the Purity Upgrade.

The process of un-registering and re-registering the Storage Providers in vCenter will force an update to the VASA version in the vCenter UI.
