I recently received a replacement laptop. The PC was clean except for Windows 8.1 and Office. Also installed was the latest 64 bit release of Java. I needed to install NetApp OnCommand System Manager to perform admin duties on some FAS controllers running 7-mode. The older versions of OnCommand I'd downloaded previously all produced errors related to Java being required. I thought about installing an older version, but that can be a pain as well as security risk.
I then went to the Netapp support website on the off chance a newer release was available. And there it was, OnCommand for Windows 3.1.2. The overview section said exactly what I needed to read:
New Features in System Manager 3.1.2
- Support for 32-bit or 64-bit Oracle® Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 8
- Support for Internet Explorer® 11
So there it is, if you're looking to run Java 8, there's a version of OnCommand System Manager ready for you.
