Reviewing and deploying the configuration

You can review the information you provided before beginning deployment. You can also correct any incorrect or incomplete information before you proceed.

Steps

  1. Optional: Click the HCI export configuration to CSV icon to download setup information about the installation in CSV format.
    You can archive this file and refer to it later for configuration information.
  2. Expand each section and review the information. To expand all sections at once, click Expand All.
  3. Optional: To make changes to information in any displayed section:
    1. Click Edit in the corresponding section.
    2. Make the necessary changes.
    3. Click Continue until you reach the Review page. Your previous settings are saved on each page.
    4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to make any other necessary changes.
  4. If you do not want to send cluster statistics and support information to NetApp-hosted SolidFire Active IQ servers, clear the final checkbox.
    This disables real-time health and diagnostic monitoring for NetApp HCI. Disabling this feature removes the ability for NetApp to proactively support and monitor NetApp HCI to detect and resolve problems before production is affected.
  5. If all information is correct, click Start Deployment.
    A dialog appears. In the event of network connectivity issues or power loss during the final setup process, or if your browser session is lost, you can copy the URL displayed in the dialog and use it to browse to the final setup progress page.
  6. Review the information in the dialog and click Copy to Clipboard to copy the URL to your clipboard.
  7. Save the URL to a text file on your computer.
  8. When you are ready to proceed with deployment, click OK.
    Deployment begins and a progress page is displayed. Do not close the browser window or navigate away from the progress page until deployment is complete. If your browser session is lost for any reason, you can browse to the URL you copied earlier (and accept any security warnings that appear) to regain access to the final setup progress page.
    Note: If the deployment fails, save any error message text and contact NetApp Support.
  9. Optional: During deployment, to download setup information about the installation in CSV format, click Export all setup information to CSV file.
  10. When deployment is complete, click Launch vSphere Client to begin managing your new NetApp HCI installation.
