Configuring ONTAP Cloud to send configuration backups to Cloud Manager

You should configure ONTAP Cloud to send configuration backups to Cloud Manager if the target location is currently the NetApp Support instance, or if you added new working environments to Cloud Manager by discovering existing ONTAP Cloud instances.

About this task

ONTAP Cloud instances launched from Cloud Manager 2.1 and later automatically send configuration backups to Cloud Manager using HTTPS. ONTAP Cloud instances launched from a previous release of Cloud Manager send the files to the NetApp Support instance. The NetApp Support instance is no longer launched by Cloud Manager starting in version 2.1.

The configuration backup files contain information about the configurable options that ONTAP Cloud needs to operate properly. You can use the files with the help of NetApp technical support to restore a configuration.

Steps

  1. From the working environment, click the menu icon and then click Advanced > Configuration backups.
  2. Click Set Backup Target.
  3. Click OK to confirm.
  4. Repeat the steps for other ONTAP Cloud instances.

Result

ONTAP Cloud is now configured to send the configuration backups to Cloud Manager every eight hours.
