Working with the management node

You can use the management node (mNode) to upgrade system services, manage cluster assets and settings, run system tests and utilities, configure Active IQ for system monitoring, and enable NetApp Support access for troubleshooting.

For clusters running Element software version 11.3 or later, you can make changes to network and cluster settings, run system tests, or use system utilities using the management node UI (https://[mNode IP}:442). You can also use the built-in REST API UI (https://[mNode IP}/mnode) to run or understand APIs relating to the management node services, including proxy server configuration, service level updates, or managing assets known to the management node.
