Installing Cloud Manager on an existing Linux host

You can install the Cloud Manager software on an existing Linux host in your network or in the cloud. This is an alternative to running Cloud Manager on a new system deployed from the AWS Marketplace or the Azure Marketplace.

Before you begin

You should have reviewed host requirements, which includes the supported operating systems.

Cloud Manager software requirements

About this task


  1. Download the software from the NetApp Support Site, and then copy it to the Linux host.
    For help with connecting and copying the file to an EC2 instance in AWS, see AWS Documentation: Connecting to Your Linux Instance Using SSH.
  2. Assign permissions to execute the script.
    chmod +x
  3. Run the installation script: ./ [silent] [proxy=ipaddress] [proxyport=port] [proxyuser=user_name] [proxypwd=password]

    silent runs the installation without prompting you for information.

    proxy is required if the Cloud Manager host is behind a proxy server.

    proxyport is the port for the proxy server.

    proxyuser is the user name for the proxy server, if basic authentication is required.

    proxypwd is the password for the user name that you specified.

  4. Unless you specified the silent parameter, type Y to continue the script, and then enter the HTTP and HTTPS ports when prompted.
    If you change the HTTP and HTTPS ports, you must ensure that users can access the Cloud Manager web console from a remote host:
    • Modify the security group to allow inbound connections through the ports.
    • Specify the port when you enter the URL to the Cloud Manager web console.


Cloud Manager is now installed. At the end of the installation, the Cloud Manager service (occm) restarts twice if you specified a proxy server.

After you finish

Log in to Cloud Manager using a web browser, and then complete the Setup wizard.
