EMC solutions enabler 7.1 is out and directly available as a vApp.

Here’s a screenshot of the download link.
Personally, I’ve found the vApp package makes deploying solutions enabler (set of tools, public APIs used by many storage-related management tools) much easier. Remember that if you are using a Symmetrix with Solutions Enabler that you can easily configure gatekeeper LUNs (small LUNs used for inband communication to the Symmetrix) using physical mode RDMs.
