Registering ONTAP Cloud pay-as-you-go systems

Support from NetApp is included with ONTAP Cloud Explore, Standard, and Premium systems, but you must first activate that support by registering the systems with NetApp, if you have not set up automatic registration.

Before you begin

The host from which you are logged in to Cloud Manager must have Internet access. If it does not, you can register from another location by going to NetApp ONTAP Cloud Registration.

About this task

If a tenant is linked to a NetApp Support Site account, Cloud Manager automatically registers the system with that account. However, if the tenant is not linked to an account, then you should register systems with NetApp after you launch them.

Steps

  1. On the Working Environments page, double-click the name of the system that you want to register.
  2. Click the menu icon and then click Support registration:
